Getting around Komatsu City

Tourists can get to the various attractions by walking or taking the local buses!

バスTaking the Bus

Many of the local attractions can be reached using the local bus network. Komatsu buses are boarded from the back door, and alighted from the front.

If you are unsure on how to take the bus, read on! To catch a bus, first find your way to any of the designated bus stops.

Take a ticket when boarding and take note of the number. You only pay upon getting off the bus.

To know how much you need to pay, compare your ticket number to the one on the LCD display located in front of the bus.

Most buses only accept coins, so remember to bring change! However, a bill exchanger is often located next to the driver as well.

WalkingCyclingWalking or Cycling

Some of the local attractions are located close to Komatsu Station, and can be reached on foot or by cycling. There are shops around Komatsu Station and Awazu Station that rent out bicycles.

DrivingDriving Around

Renting a car is generally considered the best way to get around Komatsu. Some attractions such as Hanibe Caves and Natadera are located relatively far apart. It can be somewhat difficult to visit all within a day if you intend to use the bus. Car rentals can be found just outside the station and in the airport.
