Cherry blossom rains mark the beginning of spring on the Noto Peninsula.
Noto’s Satoyama and Satoumi have been designated as GIAHS (Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems), replete with pristine virgin landscapes that undergo remarkable transformation season-to-season. It is a particularly dazzling sight when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
The Noto Peninsula has earned the title of “A Treasure Trove of Festivals” due to its rich ancient festival culture. There is a unique festive event taking place on the peninsula almost every week. Every summer starts with the Seihakusai Dekayama Festival, followed by Nanao Gion Matsuri, Kanazawa Hyakumangoku Matsuri, Issaki Hoto Festival, Wajima Taisai, and various Kiriko Festivals, etc. And the list goes on...
At this time of the year, the brilliant red maple leaves serve as an omnipresent backdrop to the varied and resplendent natural wilderness. A bike ride along the coastline is one excellent way to take in some remarkable views. Or you may choose to cruise in the Nanao Bay and get up close with some wild dolphins. Pick from the selection of varied natural scenic spots and customise your own engaging itinerary in Noto.
