Hakui is a city located in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. The city was founded on July 1, 1958.As of June 1, 2011, the city has an estimated population of 23,682 with 8,368 households and a population density of 288.95 persons per km². The total area is 81.96 km².NameThe name of the town is made of two Kanji, 羽, meaning feathers, and 咋 meaning eat or take in your mouth. This name comes from an ancient legend which tells of a royal prince killing a monstrous bird which plagued the area. The Prince's dogs went to the beast's body and pulled away mouthfuls of feathers.BusinessHakui is the main city in the Southern Noto district, and the main area for shopping lies along Route 415. This area contains almost all of Hakui's large shops including hardware stores, clothes shops, electronics stores, opticians, restaurants, second hand shops, pharmacists and supermarkets. The biggest shopping center is MaxValu Hakui, a supermarket flanked by Yamaya (a liquor/import food store) and a Hyaku-en plaza (100 yen store). The car park has a capacity for 350 vehicles.Hakui has a European style high street called Paseo Dori. However, many stores are closed and many of the remainder are too specialist for this street to be considered a main shopping area. It is, however, home to Hakui's only branch of Hokkoku bank.TransportAll trains going through Hakui stop at the station, including the Thunderbird limited express between Wakura Onsen and Osaka. The train line goes north through Nanao and terminates at Wakura Onsen. The southern terminus is at Kanazawa station.The main roads are the Noto Yuryo toll road, Route 249, Route 159, Route 415, and Prefectural Road 2.
