Is it possible or do i need to reserve sits so i have any risk to lose the train?

Which pass is better Hokuriku arch or jr pass (7 days), considering the extra travel tine? Is it worth the price difference?

Hi there,

I do recommend making seat reservations but this can be done 30 minutes or so before boarding the train.

I would suggest using a normal 7 day JR pass, as you would have to travel back via Kanazawa from Osaka to Tokyo, this adds a lot of travel time, which could be used to explore Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
