Stops and route are marked in English and, once you're familiar with the procedure (pay using travel card when you get off), it's all very easy.

This bus goes more or less around Kanazawa in two directions. Get a day-pass and you will easily be able to cruise around. Drivers don't speak English but are friendly and helpful.

Consider the day pass if you are going to 3 or more places. The frequency is good and it saves you time from walking between places of interest.
