Noto Peninsula

Noto Peninsula is in the Northern half of Ishikawa Prefecture, and extends into the Sea of Japan.
Noto Peninsula attracts visitors because of its stunning scenery, and National Parks. And Wajima City, and Wakura Onsen are highly populars amongst tourists, mainly because it is such a relaxing area.
The peninsula's secludedness is one of the reasons it draws so many visitors, but on the other hand it means that transportation is difficult without a car, so it is recommended to rent one.


There are a few temples and shrines to visit in the area, such as the Sojiji Temple, the Myojoji Temple, and the Keta Taisha Shrine.
There are also beautiful coasts to see, such as the Kongo Coast, and the Okunoto Coast.
The Wakura Onsen and Chirihama Beach are definitely places to go to as well!


The main industries of the area are tourism, fishing and agriculture. So basically, this means that the area is stunning and you're guaranteed to eat well!
If you like fishing, there are many places to do that.
Also, if you're an avid cyclist, the Peninsula is a great place to cycle. As the scenery is gorgeous. There are some cyling tours you can sign up for there, where you can cycle around the peninsula for around a week and sleep in traditional ryokans.

How to get there

From Tokyo:
-By train: You can take the JR Hokuriku Shinkansen to Kanazawa, and then transfer to a JR limited express train to get to Wakura Onsen. All this takes about less than 4 hours and is covered by the Japan Rail Pass. If you're travelling in Japan, it is suggested to get it, as travelling by Shinkansen can get quite costly.

-By air: You can fly from Haneda airport to Noto airport. The flight takes about one hour.
