Utterly beautiful structure. Spacious and airy. Tidy and clean with practical signage. Light years ahead of railway stations in the UK which are still struggling from the move away from the dirty days coal-fired steam.

Japanese railway stations can be the hub of the town. Kanazawa's upgrade was due to the extension of the Shinkansen and is clean and modern. There are plenty of restaurants and the Eastern gate is a photo opportunity

As we arrived at Kanazawa Station from Osaka, we're truly amazed at what greeted us. Standing tall, this amazing structure, an architectural marvel (Tsuzumi-mon Gate) fronts the JR Kanazawa Station. It's also a transportation hub for Shinkansen, local trains, bus interchange.....Do look at the fountain that tells time/artistic gems. Inside the Station can be found some of the best shopping, food/restaurants.

Perhaps the most stunning station in Japan. The architecture, art, and layout of this station all work together to make it more than just a hub of transportation. I wish I had taken more photos of the station!

The station is quite a structure! As a visitor, one needs time to work out where to go, manage buying a ticket from the vending machine, etc. One can be lucky to enlist the help of one of the station hands. Seems to be quite a few of these fellows on duty. Big station!

You arrive. You leave.

Or you could leave and then arrive later, but that conundrum would be like solving whether the chicken or the egg came first.

Big, Huge, Modern. Lots of glass and steel.

Not much else to say, except to Trainspotters, and I don't speak their language
