Drive from Kanazawa to Noto Peninsula

Jump to last reply

I'm seriously thinking about modifying our "final" itinerary for our trip and substituting 2 nights on the Noto Peninsula for Takayama. When I was first thinking about the trip for this coming May, I had a couple of nights here in mind and for various reasons took it off the list. But we really love coastal areas and something about it keeps telling me to add it back in (I know they are all different but we will be visiting Kanazawa and Kyoto on this trip so the Noto Peninsula is more of a contrast with those places).

One of the concerns I had that made me drop it was that we'd be driving. I'm less concerned about that now except for driving in and out of Kanazawa. So for anyone who has done this, can you give me your assessment of how difficult it was to drive out of the rental car places near the train station? Another option is to take the train to Nanao (we're coming from Matsumoto) and rent the car from there, but this would extend the train time and eliminate some of the stops on the Kongo coast. Any thoughts? FYI, DH has no problem driving on the left and we plan to rent a GPS.

As always, thanks!
