The Raicho is a high speed train that runs between Osaka and Kanazawa via Kyoto and Fukui along the northern side of Lake Biwa. The Thunderbird (サンダーバード) is a faster version of the same service that continues on from Kanazawa to Toyama.
The Green Car first class section of the train has wide "panorama" type windows.
There is a women-only section in the reserved-seating cars of both the Raicho and Thunderbird trains.
