Houdatsushimizu-town has many spots that are alive with the nature of Noto’s Satoyama-Satoumi, including Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, the only bit of coast that you can drive a car along in Japan, and Mt. Houdatsu, the highest peak on the peninsula. It is our pleasure to introduce other sites in Houdatsushimizu-town, including ruins and buildings related to Kaga Domain, and also the grave where Moses (!?) rests.
There are many speciality products that have come into being thanks to the blessings offered by Satoyama-Satoumi: figs; Koshihikari rice; Houdatsu kudzu arrowroot, which has a history of over 450 years; and Ruby Roman, the highest yielding grapes in Ishikawa Prefecture.View more
