Kanazawa east in January

Guidance will be appreciated on how best a family with children 4 to 9 may travel from Kanazawa to Nagano in mid January.

Hyperdia.com will give you various options the quickest would take just over 3 hours with one change. But always ask the JR staff at the Midori mado reservations counter for advice as they will tell you the best options for connections & ensure your party sits together - remember long distance train seats can swivel around so that a party of 4 can sit together facing eachother.

By the end of 2014 the Nagano Shinkansen is set to extend to Kanazawa if you can wait until then!

To Nagano city train, but to the ski areas car is easier than changing train and bus multiple times. Charter taxi is an option for those who don't want to drive. You know to call me in Kanazawa!

Thanks for the responses.

I was wrong about the rail connections. Hyperdia makes clear that Kanazawa can connect with all bases of interest easily enough.

There will be more goofy questions!
