My wife and I went to the Noto Peninsula from August 12 to 17. First off, yes, it was quite hot at times and I did get a pretty good sunburn probably just because I wanted to get "a little colour" and didn't use sunscreen . Besides that, everything was great. As I live in Kanagawa, which is crowded, going to Ishikawa is a great way to get in touch with nature and get rid of stress. We drove there (first to Kanazawa City) and it took 6.5 hours. The toll was 4,500 yen because we left at midnight. Loaded up the ipod and hit shuffle. Nice drive with very little traffic.
The next five days were spent near the sea, both admiring the beautiful rocky shore, and swimming in the warm, clean Japan Sea. Loved it.
From Go Go black curry, to White gyoza, the food was great and reasonably priced. For two nights we stayed at Route Inn, in Nanao near Wakura Onsen (hot spring). 8,000 yen for two with buffet breakfast. It has a nice onsen bath on the first floor, too.
Noto Island is so sweet. The pace of life slows down as soon as you cross one of the beautiful bridges. A public hot spring or the beach. The choice is yours. Snorkle, go fishing. Gorgeous area (don't look at the "whatever" plant across the bay).
Anyway, without getting into details, I can't wait to go there again.
