We are planning to visit Kanazawa in mid December 2018 and would like to stop over at Notojima. Understand it is difficult to go to Notojima by public transport. Is it advisable to drive to Notojima from Kanazawa. Would also like to visit Shirakawago. Is it advisable to drive to Shirakawago in December? Will there be snow? Appreciate any advice. Thank you.

By mid-Dec the mountain road b/w Kanazawa to Shirakawa-go would likely be covered in snow. Don't drive if you do not have driving experience on snowy/icy roads. Take Nohi bus instead.
