Japan 2013, On Tour

Day 14: Asahi to Noto Peninsula

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

    That temple looks amazing, dude.

    Out of curiosity, have you taken more pictures than what you’ve put up here, or is it WYSIWYG?
