The major means of transportation in Kanazawa for tourists is Kanazawa Loop Bus. It is very convenient covering major sightseeing spots of the city running every 12 minutes. With a one-day pass of 500 yen, you can use the bus as often as you would like.
In addition to this Loop Bus, public rental bicycle service named ¡®Machi-nori¡¯ came up to town in the last spring as a handy means of transportation. This new system was put into practice by Kanazawa city. You can take out or return a bicycle at any of the 18 docking stations around the city or the ¡®Machi-nori¡¯ head office.
Why don¡¯t you enjoy the ¡®Machi-nori¡¯ to make a free tour in the town feeling its atmosphere.
