Because it comprises a coastal area with a vibrant fishing community and scenic spots, as well as an inland area with farm culture, Noto Town has the characteristics of both satoumi and satoyama. The Mawaki Ruins, where ancient remains of the Jomon period (14,500 BC to about 300 BC) have been excavated, are a must-see.
