The Ishikawa Line train runs from Kanazawa (Nomachi Station) through to Tsurugi (Tsurugi Station). Tsurugi Station is the closest train station to the Mt. Hakusan foothills. Buses also run from Tsurugi Station to Sena and Shiramine, and bicycles can be rented to journey through Tsurugi and into the foothills.
The Hokuriku Main Line train runs from Kanazawa (Kanazawa Station) to the Matto, Kaga-kasama, Mikawa, and Komaiko Stations. It’s useful for visiting the towns of Matto and Mikawa, and for transferring to the Hokuriku Rail Road Ishikawa Line from Kanazawa Station (see the “Guide to Using the Hokuriku Rail Road Trains” above).
The Hakusan Tedorigawa Geopark is a great place for cycling. There are two main cycling paths, the Hakusan Tedori River Route (a branch of the Ishikawa Satoyama Satoumi Track), and the Tedori Canyon Road. The Hakusan Tedori River Route is a long path over 100km in length that follows the Tedori River from the Matto coastline all the way to Hakusan Ichirino Onsen in the mountains, and back. The Tedori Canyon Road is an almost 20km section of the Hakusan Tedori River Route that goes from Tsurugi to Sena in the mountains. Cycling is also a great way to get around and see all the sites that Tsurugi has to offer.
Bicycles can be rented from the Hakusan City Tourism League, in front of Tsurugi Station, between 9am and 4pm (must be returned by 5pm).
Standard bikes: ￥300/day
Electric-assisted bikes: ￥700 - ￥1000/day.
