Cycling the Noto Peninsula

Story by Oku Japan

Posted: September 11, 2018

The peninsula is known for its breathtaking coastline and its abundant nature. There are pristine landscapes and picturesque, beautifully-preserved small villages to explore. Cycling around the Noto Peninsula is a unique experience, on mainly flat coastal routes and also some peaceful mountain roads, to enjoy the serene atmosphere of this lovely area. Cycle at your own pace past terraced rice fields, spectacular rock formations, and engaging fishing ports.

The Noto Peninsula is home to some of the most incredible, fresh seafood you can imagine. In this remote and rural area, you will be delighted with the local specialties unique to the region. To make the most of your time, try the delicious seasonal dishes, wander Wajima's morning market with locals, and enjoy carefully crafted, homemade meals each day after exploring the peninsula.
