Extremely clean and modern station. An absolutely fabulous shopping mall and friendly people. The Japan rail attendants were out in force to help English speaking passengers

This train station's entrance is like a gate with a modern wood design. There's a fountain close to the street that has a digital clock with small jets. An achitectural beauty and technological feat.

No wonder the architecture has won awards, fusion of modern metals and twisted timbers at the entrance. Inside you'll find all the necessary shops and restaurants to refill before your train trip.

Everyone seems to go through Kanzawa station, including air travellers taking limousine aiport bus (note long range buses leave from West Gate, short range form East Gate). Seems very well organized.

This is one of the most impressive stations we have ever seen. Well worth a visit even if you haven't arrived by train.
