Where to stay in Wajima

Since Wajima lies secluded on the northern tip of the Noto Peninsula, accommodation options in town don't vary widely in style or price. Aside from a couple of mid-range and high-end hotels, lodgings mostly consist of traditional Japanese inns, or "ryokan." Often offering "tatami" floors and free wi-fi, or even private "onsen" bathhouses, the inns in Wajima can be pricier than their big city counterparts.
