Tokyo to Kanazawa 14 March

I have read that the Nagano Shinkansen ( Hokuriku Shinkansen ) will be extended from Tokyo to Kanazawa from the 14 March 2015. Will it be available from that date? I cant find a timetable on Hyperdia. Can I book tickets when I arrive in Japan on Wednesday 11 March.
thank you


Hi there,

The Hyperdia time table has indeed not yet been updated (this will most likely be done in March). The Shinkansen will indeed open on the 14th of March. Fingers crossed though on the availability of tickets. It's likely going to be a very popular ride! (try to reserve the tickets the moment that you reach Japan).

Hope this helps,
