On the JR WEST ONLINE TRAIN RESERVATION website, you can set the train transfer conditions when booking the desired route area:
● Not specified (typical search) Displays ideal results under the most efficient conditions.
● Choose "Do not change trains once", if you wish to travel on the same train from the departure station to the arrival station.
※ Should your destination require a transit, such as a connection between an ordinary train and an express train or a connection between an express train and a Shinkansen, an error will occur if you specify "Do not change trains".
(example) When traveling between Hakata-Kanazawa, an error will appear if you specify "Do not change trains" as it is required to transit between Shinkansen and express Thunderbirds at the Shin-Osaka Station (or Kyoto Station).
● When you run a search, please specify a station of your choice when you wish to ride without changing trains within a sectioned area.
※ If you enter "A station → B station" in the section "Do not change trains within an area", you will be guided to a train line that does not require a transit. However, between Station A and Station B, there will always be a transfer to another train.
