Tour Details

  1. Hotel Collection: We will collect you from your Hotel or chosen location in Kanazawa at 08:30 in the morning (This is open to change if you wish to go earlier or later) 
  2. Wajima Market: Our English speaking driver will take you directly to Wajima Market. Energetic voices fill the avenue from early mornings, stalls line the streets, selling fresh fish brought in from the port, fresh vegetables from the nearby farmland, traditional arts & crafts, and dry provisions. With more than one thousand years of history, this market is a must see.
  3. Senmaida Rice Fields: People visiting Senmaida are greeted by a spectacular site with many layers of rice paddies set on steep slopes with an area of 1.2 hectares. 2000 green rice paddies face the sea, spread almost geometrically, creating a beautiful and bright landscape against a background of the blue sea. From Spring to Summer, the rays of evening sun setting over the sea reflect beautifully on the green paddies and make it an ideal spot for landscape photography.
  4. Okunoto salt farm: Our next stop is the Okunoto salt farm Village in Suzu, this is the only facility in Japan to use the traditional "Agehama" Technique for salt production. As the name suggests, a salt field is a field for producing salt, and the process involves spreading clay on top of bedrock, then spreading sand after the clay has hardened. This process of producing natural salt with rich minerals is over 500 years old.
  5. Myojoji Temple: Myojoji Temple is the head temple of Nichiren Sect in Hokuriku Region. You will visit Joroku-do, a hall containing an impressive wooden statue of Shakamuni Buddha (5 meters tall, 1686); this statue was restored recently to remove all alterations that were made in the last centuries, and restored to its original form.
  6. Chirihama Nagisa Driveway: This famous beach Driveway runs from Imahama Beach to Hakui-gun's Chirihama beach. This beach driveway is 8 km long and has a road-width of 50 m. It's made of tightly compacted fine sand making it firm enough for a pleasant drive along the beach.
