The Noto Peninsula 能登半島 is a land steeped in coastal culture, incredible scenery, and top notch seafood. While the western side of Japan's mainland is less-traveled, its uniqueness is unrivaled. The bustling cities of Takayama and Kanazawa fade quickly into terraced rice paddies, steep rocky ocean cliffs, and surreal views from its sandy beaches.
While Noto is one of the least populated areas in all of Japan, what the area lacks in numbers it more than makes up for in nature and adorable towns. Moreover, this is a truly fantastic place for riders interested in seeing the Japanese seaside with minimal car traffic, serene towns, and a healthy mix of hidden gems and top tourist stops.
Join us for a week long exploration of Japan's famous western peninsula for a week full of coastal roads, terraced rice fields, unbeatable seafood, and off the beaten path explorations!
Your BTJ guides will be ready to meet you at your hotel in Kanazawa for a quick shuttle to our start point at the Uchinada Cycling Terminal. After introductions and bike fits, we are off on our scenic ride along the west coast of Japan on the oceanside bike path!
We’ll enjoy a delicious lunch by the seashore before we reach our beachside ryokan for the evening. When you’re ready, meet up with our guides for a beautiful traditional dinner and our first toast to a great week ahead!
