Getting there and around

The Boso Flower Line connects Tateyama with Chikura. It is best explored by rental car. The nearest rental car outlets are found in Tateyama.

Buses run about hourly along National Route 410. A JR bus (covered by the Japan Rail Pass, JR East Nagano Niigata Area Pass and JR East Tohoku Area Pass) connects Tateyama with Awa-Shirahama via the Nojimasaki Lighthouse, while a non-JR bus connects Awa-Shirahama with Chikura Station. While the Nojimasaki Lighthouse and Shiramazu Flower Fields are well served by the above bus lines, some walking is required to reach the other attractions listed on this page.
