Wajima and Noto Peninsula
We spent about 3 days in Wajima with some day trips around the Noto Penninsula. So in answer to my own question, I will say that the food was very good, like Japan generally, but the restaurants are casual. So we had the basics-- a lot of noodles. We stayed at Minshuku Hakutoen, and the owner cooked up a storm for us every breakfast and dinner--most of which was very tasty. (I say "most" because sometimes there might have been a mayonnaise sauce with some of the dishes. I am not a mayo fan, but there were many other dishes to eat with each meal. But she clearly took pride in her cooking.) We were also there for the annual crab festival which is about the third week in November.
