Barrier-Free, Comfortable, and Simple Amenities
The Hokuriku Shinkansen are equipped with women-only powder rooms/restrooms and wheelchair-accessible restrooms, and all Western-style restrooms offer a washlet with a heated seat. Other amenities have also been improved upon, from power outlets for all seats to Braille written on seat numbers.
