The ride this morning was not so pleasant. I had to pass through the urban conglomeration of three cities around the bay before the Noto peninsula. The less busy road was very indirect through the sprawl and I could, even by looking at the map, that I would get lost easily.
Staying with the busier road made the ride more straightforward but it was not enjoyable. Dusty, hot and noisy I was glad when I could leave it after about 60km and join the road that would lead to the Noto peninsula.
Ate lunch in a ramen place by the side of the road. The chef liked the sound of my journey and gave me a nice present of an energy drink before leaving.
The peninsula was worth the rough ride in the morning though. Quiet roads lined with fishing villages. I even passed a temple that had been built into a cave.
Just before arriving at my campground for the night I passed a harbour with some nice winnings on the wall that I assume the fisherman had painted.
The campsite I set my tent up
The beach/park I moved my tent to after the campsite owner wanted me to pay 2000yen
