Let’s face it, the Noto peninsula is far from being the most popular tourist destination in Japan. Only accessible by plane or by car (no railways), this secluded place in Japan is actually a little heaven on earth for those who are looking to enjoy Japan without a horde of tourists (Japanese or not). Wajima, the largest city of the Noto peninsula, is well-known in Japan for its lacquerware, Kiriko and its famous market, the Wajima Morning Market.
Open daily from 8am to 12am, this market is believed to date back over a thousand years and there you will not only find some of Wajima famous lacquerware, but also fresh seafood and produce that comes straight from the huge port located behind the market itself.
