  • Noto tourism in the dead of winter. A visit in the snowbound roads. Going for the kill, but unexpectedly good. Kotatsu is installed in front of large whale and dolphin, sea lion and Penguin walks, and what to say, water tank and put a foot on the kotatsu, while we watch slowly was surprise.

  • It is the local Aquarium. Come back home after a long time, I went with my daughter and my mother and I. Whale shark in two with a stylish blue illuminated, and dating-it! I thought. Children enjoyed in a large tank. The Centerfolds Notojima Aquarium from the old dolphin show quality is high. See the dolphin show somewhere else and see it? "Next I. Dolphin show on weekdays, and a cold day, so there are few people. Is the sister show of "left the dolphin show or people? "And did not raise your hand and hear only one person. Lol this-seems to go there and go at her, I guess. → I was actually my little 2 times-show of hands are touching a dolphin. Is there time to touch the seals, or the March of the penguins, jellyfish exhibit is fashionable or really enjoy Aquarium. But take a look at anyway cool sea breeze, so go during the colder months. It is recommended.

Where to stay in Nanao

Accommodation in Nanao is scarce, mostly consisting of a couple of inns and hotels catering to business travelers, scattered around the city. The Wakura Onsen, on the other hand, boasts a large variety of traditional Japanese "ryokan" guesthouses, as well as mid-range and high-end Western-style hotels. Situated on the coast just outside of town, the "onsen" resort village features lodings with scenic sea views.
