Noto Peninsula Overview
- Jutting out of the middle of Japan from the north coast lies one of the most secluded parts of the country: Noto Peninsula. Thanks to its abundance of rugged coastlines, untouched cedar forests, and one of the nation’s favorite styles of lacquerware, the peninsula is one of the prides of Ishikawa Prefecture. While it’s rare to find Noto Peninsula on a list of the top places to visit in Japan, this most certainly isn’t due to a lack of attractions in the area. Mainly due to limited public transportation, much of the region is relatively undiscovered which makes any trip to the peninsula an authentic experience of rural Japan. Best explored by car, the main road running through the peninsula follows mountainous routes through forests and along spectacular coastlines with secluded typical Japanese houses along the way. Following Route 249 through the west of the peninsula promises views of rugged cliffs, interesting rock formations, and temples as well as a number of beaches which range from somewhat quiet to completely isolated. While the east coast of the peninsula is more populated than the west, the surrounding and inland areas are left to grow free with thick forests covering rolling hills for kilometer upon kilometer. While the wild nature is, of course, one of the main draws to Noto, there are also a number of small cities and fishing villages in the area including Nanao, the largest city on the peninsula known for its lacquer Buddhist altars, Noto City, and Suzu. One of the largest and most visited of the cities is Wajima, which is found halfway up the peninsula in the Okunoto region. This port city is best known for its local morning markets and its Wajima-nuri lacquerware, a colorful material used to make kitchenware that is most commonly black and red and decorated with gold engravings. The ever popular Wakura Onsen hot springs lie at the base of the peninsula within Nanao City; the area has gradually grown into a small development made up of traditional ryokan which encompass the famous natural hot springs. ©NAVITIME JAPAN.

Getting Around Noto Peninsula By Car
- Stretching 100 km north out of the top of Ishikawa Prefecture, Noto Peninsula is covered from top to bottom with wild mountainous forests and kilometers of stunning coast. While the remoteness is what makes the peninsula such a desirable place to visit, getting around is a little more challenging so hiring a car is the best way to do it. Noto Peninsula, or Noto Hanto as it’s known in Japanese, is a region rich in nature with a relatively small number of roads passing through. While there are particular attractions along the way that can be visited by bus or train, part of the enjoyment of the area is exploring it at your own pace. With deserted beaches, picturesque mountain villages, and even rocks shaped like Godzilla, there are infinite spots to discover along the way that you won’t find on a list of places to go. Hiring a car can be straightforward as long as you are in the possession of either an international driving license or if you create a Japanese license, which can be done in any major city around Japan. Cars can be hired from the majority of cities within Noto Peninsula, including including Wajima, Noto City, and Nanao. Car hire is also available from Noto Airport which is found in the middle of the peninsula around a 20-minute drive from Wajima. Navigating your way around Noto in a car is relatively straight forward thanks to Route 249 which runs all the way around the east and west sides of the peninsula via coastal roads and the main cities. A lot of the main attractions along the way are well signposted from Route 249 but it's recommended to set yourself up with satellite navigation to be on the safe side. For those traveling from Kanazawa up to the peninsula, follow the Route 200 out of Kanazawa which quickly brings you near the coast where the road shortly turns into the 249. ©NAVITIME JAPAN.

- Commonly referred to as Little Kyoto, Kanazawa is a city brimming with tradition that attracts visitors year upon year thanks to its streets of old wooden tea houses, an abundance of traditional crafts and some of Japan’s most beautiful gardens. Kanazawa is the capital of Ishikawa Prefecture which is found on the central northern coast of Japan tucked behind the Japanese Alps and facing onto the Japan Sea. An important location during the Edo period thanks to the powerful Maeda Clan, Kanazawa has started to attract attention again in recent years after it became a stop on the Hokuriku Shinkansen route in 2015. As one of the few major cities that was left intact following the air raids during WWII, the city still sports several old tea house and samurai districts where you can soak up an authentic feel of traditional Japan surrounded by beautiful architecture and age-old customs.The majority of central Kanazawa lies between the Asano river in the east and the Sai river in the west with the esteemed Kenrokuen Garden and the adjoined Kanazawa Castle grounds taking center stage. An unmissable spot in the city, for both its location and its reputation, Kenrokuen Garden and its beautiful landscapes have earned it a spot as one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. However, greenery is in no way limited to the gardens with an abundance of nature surrounding the metropolis.The city’s most visited areas are its tea house and samurai districts thanks to their preserved Japanese streets from over 300 years ago. These days, the most captivating spots include the Nagamachi samurai district in the west of the city which houses a maze of old cobbled streets and samurai residences, or head east of Asano river to the Higashi Chaya geisha district with its main street of vibrant wooden tea houses. Much like Kyoto, geisha were a prominent part of Kanazawa’s culture during the Edo period (1603 - 1868), however, the small number of remaining geisha today make it unlikely you’ll catch a glimpse without attending a performance.Ubiquitous throughout town are Kanazawa’s crafts, most notably the intricate designs of kutani-yaki ceramics, the delicate Kaga yuzen designed kimonos and gold leaf which can be found everywhere from the buildings to the beauty products, and even sprinkled on ice cream. As well as being an ideal location to try out the renowned sake and seafood of Ishikawa Prefecture, Kanazawa also hosts the lively festivals of Hyakumangoku Matsuri across the first weekend of June and Asano-gawa Enyukai in the second week of April, which do nothing but demonstrate how the city is alive with the vibrancy of its culture and traditions.Although the city’s older traditions are one of the main draws to Kanazawa, the Katamachi district bustles with business in the day, before the streets come alive at night in the local restaurants, bars and clubs. The ever popular 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art also acts as a symbol of the city’s modern side. ©NAVITIME JAPAN. Travel Info Check out our travel tips to make your trip better!
