Nohi Bus to Shirakawago - Reservations and Luggage advice?

We will be getting the Nohi bus from Kanazawa to Shirakawago. Is there adequate space for suitcases on these buses?

Also, would it be ok to book Nohi bus the day before or further in advance?

Asequate space in the luggage area and they'll store your luggage for 500Y piece (big stuff) inside the info centre. No big lockers. They clipped out backpack to the roller and only charged us for one piece. If staying there no probs at all.

We booked the day before as it was during cherry blossom. Probabaly wont hurst esp if you get front row of the bus just for the view out the window

You should be ok booking the bus the day before. Sometimes the reservations are really just for the peace of mind during non-peak travel days. I once booked a bus on the phone and when I turned up for the ride, nobody checked my name for a reservation.
