[Noto Peninsula/Nanao City] 7 recommended Noto-mae sushi restaurants
Nanao City is located in the center of the Noto Peninsula. What impresses tourists here is the abundance of seafood caught in Nanao Bay, which is also known as a good natural harbor. We will introduce you to local sushi restaurants where you can enjoy delicious food in all seasons.
Nanao City is located in the center of the Noto Peninsula. Nanao Bay, which stretches out in front of you, is home to a wide variety of seafood, so diverse that it has been nicknamed the ``natural fish tank,'' and the market is stocked with fresh seafood throughout the year. This is because the blessings of the tidal border off the coast of Nanao, where warm and cold currents collide, and the mineral-rich groundwater flowing from the Tateyama Mountain Range create high-quality fishing grounds. Why not enjoy sushi made with fresh local ingredients to your heart's content in Nanao? In this article, we will introduce restaurants where you can enjoy Nanao City's famous sushi, ``Noto-mae sushi,'' which uses ``local seasonal ingredients'' and ``rice grown in Noto's Satoyama.''
