About 20km northeast of Monzen, the fishing port of Wajima (輪島), historically famed for delicate Wajima-nuri (lacquerware), is the largest town in Oku-Noto, although it, too, is following a trend of rural depopulation. However, the arrival of the Hokuriku Shinkansen into Kanazawa seems to be helping things out with an injection of tourist spending.
