Bus from Toyama to Niigata

Is there a bus from Toyama to Niigata that travels along the coastline of the Sea of Japan? How long does it take, and what is the cost?

I delayed replying because I hoped someone else would have first-hand knowledge.

I could not find a direct bus from Toyama to Niigata. There is one from Kanazawa, but it runs only twice a day. My impression, from looking at Wikimapia, is that the expressway is inland from the rail line and runs in tunnels much of the way. Here is an example wikimapia.org/…2

Perhaps the best plan is to take the Limited Express HOKUETSU to Niigata. It takes three hours, and seems to run along the coast much of the way.

Well, there%26#39;s a direct bus from Toyama to Niigata twice a day.

Toyama station (departure): 7:50am, 17:10

Niigata station (arrival): 11:38 am, 20:58

Cost: 4000 yen (7200 yen for round trip)

Tickets can be bought at the booth in Dentetsu Toyama Station Building 1F. (phone: 076-433-4890)


I cannot comment on the view from the bus, though...
