Three Star Route pass 2019/8/21 10:08
Does anyone know about the Three Star Route pass to travel between Matsumoto-Takayama-Shirakawa-go and Kanazawa.

How do we book tickets and from where?

Hi. It seems like there's no English information about the three stars ticket. Maybe you can google translate their Japanese website.

You can buy the tickets at the following locations.
- Hokutetsu station center (next to the bus stop 1 of the Kanazawa station east bus terminal)
-Matsumoto bus terminal (at the Alpico transportation company)

Hope this helps.

This is in English.

Note that this is not a pass but ticket: You can ride one section only once and can't backtrack.
