The fishing port of Wajima (輪島), historically famed for delicate Wajima-nuri (lacquerware), is the largest town in the Noto Peninsula's north. The 2015 arrival of the Hokuriku shinkansen (bullet train) to Kanazawa has injected new energy into this fishing village; it's great fun seeing fashionable Japanese urbanites mingle with old salts. Wajima's fantastic Asa-ichi morning market is ground zero for people-watching and shopping for trinkets, snacks and antiques.
