Notojima Island (能登島)


An island 72 kilometers in circumference floating in Nanao Bay. The island is connected to the Noto Peninsula by two bridges-the Notojima Ohashi Bridge and Twin Bridge Noto. Included as part of Noto Hanto Quasi-National Park, the island was once designated as Notojima Town, but on October 1, 2004, the town merged with and became a part of Nanao City. Due to its history and location, the island is dotted with many ancient Buddhist and Shinto sites such as the National Historic Site-designated Susoezoana Kofun burial mound and Iyahime Shrine. In recent years, efforts have been made to increase tourism on the island, and there's something to do for visitors of all ages, including glasswork craft classes, dolphin watching, camping, sea fishing, and fresh seafood.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
