To access many of Komatsu’s lesser-known hidden gems, renting a car is recommended. This will allow you to cover more spots in a day, considering the relative distance between spots and infrequent buses. Car rentals can be found just outside the station and in the airport.

Alternatively, taxis are also readily available from Komatsu Station. For communication assistance in calling a taxi, you may approach the staff at the station souvenir store and respective tourist facilities, or use the GO taxi app.
