Introducing Wajima

About 20km north of Monzen, this fishing port is the largest town in Oku-Noto and is historically famed for Wajima-nuri (lacquerware). Although significantly damaged in the 2007 Noto Earthquake (magnitude 6.9), the town centre has been lovingly rebuilt, making it a pleasant place to spend a night and wake to enjoy the lively morning market.
