It runs to Shibayama-Chiyoda Station, where buses can provide extra service to the rest of the town. The maps of the buses are on this site in Japanese. The station closest to the bus is bus stop 24.

The train only operates in two stations and is Japan's shortest independent company rail line. As a result, bus is the main way to get around, but the nearest bus station is about a three minute walk.
