"A stretch of coastline with stunning scenery created by precipitous cliffs and jagged rock formations located a 30 minute drive from the Nishiyama Interchange on the Noto Satyoyama Kaido Road. The area is considered some of the most picturesque scenery in Noto Hanto Quasi-National Park. Particularly popular sights include the Ganmon crag, a large, gate-like rock formation with a huge hold in the middle created through erosion; the Hatago Iwa crag, renowned for its beautiful sunsets; and Yase no Cliff, a sheer cliff 35 meters high from which visitors can gaze down on the violent Sea of Japan below. A walking path follows the cliffs of the coast and leads to a treacherous inlet known as ""Yoshitsune's Boat Hideaway"" where legend has it the samurai Minamoto no Yoshitsune once hid his boat to avoid pursuers. There's also an area boat cruise which offers riders views of the rocky coastline from the sea."

Ishikawa Main Areas
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.
