  • It is easy to access and is spectacular to see. Good links between train, taxis and buses. There are many places to buy food and getting around it is easy.  more »
  • Visit the Hokuriku Shinkansen line. At the station, such as clearly and when I visited about 7 years ago, I was surprised. Tsuzumi-Mon gate was very impressive size and clean. I think you never get lost because the station is so widely. It should be noted that ticket is a wicket, whereas the conventional wicket gate of that. Come chasing after a ticket people after attending a seems the wrong ticket and people are pretty, I ride a limited express ticket, is a conventional ticket problems it is asked.
