Tokyo to Kanazawa Destination Reviews

La politique bagage n'est pas du tout indiquée au moment de l'achat. C'est en recevant la confirmation qu'on apprend que seuls les bagages de moins de 150cm tout cumulé sont acceptés. Amenez vos coussins et couvertures, car la climatisation est assez forte et rien n'est fourni. Pour le reste vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés. Le bus part et arrive à l'heure précisément indiquée et à côté des gares, c'est très pratique d'être au centre ville.
