East Japan Railway Co. has said that direct services between Tokyo and Kanazawa stations on the Hokuriku Shinkansen Line will resume on Oct. 25, after a partial suspension forced by powerful Typhoon Hagibis.

The total number of trains running on the line will be about 80 percent of the usual timetable, the operator, also known as JR East, said Friday. Meanwhile, the number of trains connecting Tokyo and Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, will be about 90 percent of the normal amount.
