In this episode of CYCLE AROUND JAPAN by NHK, we will take you to a spring journey of Noto Peninsula. The Noto Peninsula makes up the northern half of Ishikawa Prefecture, extending about 100 kilometers into the Sea of Japan. The peninsula is known for its coastal scenery, particularly along the Okunoto coast, as well as for its rural atmosphere. We will start our trip from Kanazawa where people enjoying cherry blossom, to Rokko Saki, the northernmost point of the peninsula. Because the area’s public transportation is limited, a bicycle is the best way to explore the peninsula, and it allows visitors much more freedom in exploring the region’s attractions such as the lacquer-making town of Wajima.
