My wife & I are planning to travel from Yokohama to Kanazawa via Joetsu Shinkansen on a Thurs morning. One option would be to leave Yokohama 09:02 (JR Tokaido). We would have 15 minutes to transfer to Shinkansen Tanigawa leaving Tokyo 09:44.
Will this still be rush hour in Yokohama & Tokyo? How big a problem are we setting ourselves up for? What time would you recommend to leave Yokohama?
Thanks for any help.
