Hokuriku Shinkansen finally launched operation on Mar.14th
Hokuriku Shinkansen (The North-central Bullet Trains ) grand opened its full service (Tokyo-Kanazawa)on this Mar.14th.

Hokuriku Bullet Trains started its operation partially just between Takasaki and Nagano in 1997 and Tokyo-Takasaki (Tohoku Shinkansen) and Takasaki-Nagano(Nagano Shinkansen) became a part of Hokuriku so that the line Toky0-Nagano began as “Nagano Shinkansen”, which is a part of the planned total line of Hokuriku line. However, this time Takasaki-Joetsumyoukou-Kanazawa line opened on the 14th and the “full line”(Takasaki-Kanazawa 117 km plus the existant Tokyo-Takasaki line). Another bullet train line between Kanazawa and Atsuga is also planned to be opened in 2023 to be a part of the Hokuriku line.

Now due to the launch of the new line, it has come to take only 2 hours and half ,while it used to take about 4 hours including transferrings. Since this new convenience of shortening time, Kanazawa, which is the capital of Ishikawa Pref, and is a traditional city of traditional cultures and history, now is even more popular among tourists.


To tell the truth,I used this new Hokuriku Bullet Train line from Tokyo to Kanazawa just one week after its grand opening. The new Shinkansen “Kagayaki”(/ a Shine) was quite comfortable
and other passengers seemed so happy and enjoying the trip as well. Though I had been to Kanazawa many times, this time visiting the city by Hokuriku Shinkansen was a fresh and exciting experience. Kanazawa is full of attractions with historical sites and tangible and intangible cultural things, such as Kenrokuen garden, The 21 Century Museum, gold leaves, Wajima-nuri, Kutani-yaki porceline ,and others and seemed quite lively and full of energy with the new attentions by the sightseers or visitors. I hope the attractions there will be recognized even more and more popular.
