the shopkeepers tend to be pushy (not something that is common in Japan); didn’t like the atmosphere. A lot of the urushi goods are not authentic Wajima-made but imported from China.

We stopped at the morning market on a recent trip to the Noto Peninsula and Wajima. The day was rainy, windy and quite cold. My sense was that many of the stalls did not open because of the weather. There was an interesting display of...More

Nice clean market in a small harbour city. Better to visit the lacquerware producers and the museum. Careful, in this village you can starve if you miss the lunch hour at 2 pm.

Very interesting to explore and understand the lives of the local. Open your eyes to look out for hidden treasures here. In the midst, there is this Go NAGAI Wonderful Museum you may like to visit if you are interested in Japanese cartoon.
