being a smaller station makes this one of the easiest stations to find your way. Outside, the architecture and fountain clock were just beautiful.

Nice design and very modern. Large station with many connections. Outside gate is very nice. Look at the entrance for a 'water clock'.

This station is very modern and clean. It is easy to access all amenities and includes a range of shops for the commuter and the traveler. Its design is creative yet incorporates efficient movement below and above ground to other transport or nearby hotels.

What a beautiful station, both inside and outside. Look at the architectural wonder outside and enjoy the many stores, restaurants, food market and more from the inside. And, of course, everything so well planned, so clean, so...

Be sure to see the fabulous wooden art concept Torii at the front of the station. Fab architecture. Good food and, as expected good travel networks.

I enjoyed the station mostly as an interesting example about the uses and the controlling of public space.

The large gate in front of the entrance is striking. Looking down from our hotel gave a good impression of the design. Spacious and clean with a wise range of restaurants. Excellent for people watching.

Most people would arrive here anyway but if not, this isn't worth a detour as similar to most of the other stations you would see in Japan

The Kanazawa train station is efficient and easy to navigate. Once you step out from the train, signs are mostly in English too and you can take buses or taxis easily. it also has some shopping options that are open till relatively late
