Get aroundEdit

As is increasingly common in Japan Hokuto is not really a 'city' in the commonly understood sense of the word but rather a collection of towns and villages that have pooled their administration. As such it is a very rural area and getting around largely requires a car. There are a large number of stations on the JR Chuo Line and the JR Koumi Line in Hokuto however.
