Noto Peninsula, Kanazawa: 9 reviews and 5 photos


Probably the most impressive and beautiful area of Noto Hanto is Noto-kongo, a 16Km section of the coast with unique rock formations. This area has been battered for thousands of year by the harsh unforgiving tide which has cut and shaped the rocks into interesting cliffs and embankments.

Don’t drive it! There are car a few car park areas with free parking, so get out and walk the trails to really appreciate the beauty. Be careful though, the rocks are slippery and it can be a little dangerous.

This location is prefect for lunch (heaps better than Chiri-hama) and a top spot for sunsets.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
