What is Limited Express Super Hakuto?

Super Hakuto is a special express train operated by Chizu Kyuko and West Japan Railway Company between Kyoto Station and Tottori and Kurayoshi Stations via Tokaido Main Line, Sanyo Main Line, Chizu Kyuko Chizu Line, Inbi Line and Sanin Main Line.

Super Hakuto is the train you are almost certain to take when traveling to Tottori from Osaka, Kyoto or Kobe!

Super Hakuto Stops

Super Hakuto stops at Kyoto, Shin-Osaka, Osaka, Sannomiya, Akashi, Himeji, Kamigori Kamigoori, Sayo Sayo, Ohara, Chigusa, Koriya Kooge, Tottori and Kurayoshi.

Osaka-Tottori takes about 3 hours, and if you ride the whole way from Kyoto to Kurayoshi, it takes about 3 hours and 30 minutes, quite a long train run!

Incidentally, between Kamigori and Chigou, the train runs on another railroad company’s line, the Chigou Kyuko Line!

It’s a slightly different route: JR line -> Chigashira Express line -> JR line!

Don’t miss the panoramic view at the front!

Super Hakuto does allow you to enjoy the view from the front of the train!
If you are in the third row or so, you can fully enjoy the view.

And since the train tilts to the right and left, it’s like a roller coaster ride!

Especially when the train is running through mountainous areas, it is very powerful!

You can see the train toward Kyoto from reserved seat car No. 5, and toward Tottori from unreserved seat car No. 1.
Be careful especially for the Tottori direction, as the seats are unreserved seats and will fill up quickly!

It is better to get there early and wait on the platform!
