Snow Wall of Nagano

Day 1 of 7 
Time Log: - D1 21st Sunday 05:14 Minatocho -> 05:17 Keikyu Kawasaki  05:34 JR Kawasaki -> Tokyo (05:52) 06:16 Tokyo -> Nagano (07:38) Kagayaki 1501 20:35 Toyama -> Kanazawa 20:55
1) Kawasaki -> Nagano

We started off with the first train from Minatocho Line (place where I live). Getting around Nagano-station was not that difficult. My family (3 members) had a JR rail pass of 7 days. Before using the rail pass, we just need to get it checked from the station master. Every time you pass the JR station, you need to show the pass to the station master and then checkin / checkout.  I didn't had the 90days short visa, so I had to buy tickets.
We reached Nagano around 07:38 AM. I had thought I will buy the Option ticket (http://www.jrtateyama.com/e/) from Nagano station, but the Midori Madonokuchi (ticket office of JR) opens at 10:00 and I arrived at Nagano before that. I should have bought the ticket beforehand from Tokyo.
2) Nagano -> Ogizawa Instead of wasting time waitin…
