The number of passengers using a new shinkansen service linking Tokyo with the Hokuriku region on the Sea of Japan coast has topped 10 million since it opened in March last year, West Japan Railway Co. said Wednesday.

The Hokuriku Shinkansen Line links Tokyo and Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture. It was inaugurated when a 228-km section reaching Kanazawa was added to a pre-existing route between Tokyo and Nagano that opened in October 1997.
