Driving around Noto Peninsula at end March 2019/3/19 15:52
I'll be renting a car to drive up to Noto Peninsula. Leaving Kanazawa at 11am, is it possible to cover the following attractions and still make it back to my minshuku in Notojima before dark (I'm assuming it gets dark before 6pm at end March) ? Or should I split them into 2 days?

I'll need to return to Kanazawa by 11am the next day.

- Hatago Iwa and Ganmon
- Wajima
- Senmaida
- Rokkozaki Lighthouse
- Mitsukeji
- minshuku in Notojima

Your advice will be appreciated.

Thanks..

Simple answer - no. This is due to traffic and the distances you wish to travel.

Thanks.. Would dropping both the lighthouse and Mitsukeji help?

I did a rough search on google map based on your original plan and there is more than 5 hrs of driving alone (sorry I couldnft locate Mitsukeji). You have to add time for sightseeing especially in Noto Kongo Coast. We too drove there and spent 1-2 hrs taking in Ganmon and Hatago Iwa, and that didnft include the boat cruise if you want to enjoy the view from the sea. If you donft to skip some sites is there any chance of start driving from Kanazawa at an earlier hour!?

It would indeed be nice if you can spread it out into 2 days. For a more in-depth exploration we drove around the peninsula for 3 days and still felt rather rush.

Sunset in Kanazawa during late March is a bit after 18.00.
