Getting around Hachinohe:
Buses (& Other forms of Transportation)

Hachinohe is quite the sprawling city, and with so many things to see it can make getting from point A to point B a little intimidating. One of the easiest and cheapest ways to get around town is by using the bus. Hachinohe City and the surrounding Hachinohe Area are serviced by two bus companies: the Hachinohe City Operated Bus and the Nanbu (or Nambu) Bus.  See below for information on some common bus routes, special route buses for sightseeing, and maps of bus routes inside the city. 

For a brief explanation about how to use a local bus in Japan, please see this Japan Guide article

Additionally, if you need any help with how to use the local bus or how to get to a destination during your visit to Hachinohe, please stop by The Hachinohe Tourism Information Center (located on the 2nd floor of Hachinohe station) or the front desk of the Hachinohe Portal Museum ‘hacchi’ and the staff there will be able to help you.
