Noto Peninsula. Snagged in time. Like it’s been cut off from the rest of Japan. The rest of the world.
The book I’m reading - Rice. Noodles. Fish. By @mdgoulding
and in collab with the late @anthonybourdain
) paints a rarely shared and exquisitely sublime picture of the spot we’re in. “Today’s Noto looks scarcely different from the Noto of the Jomon. Rice paddies climb the hillsides in wet, verdant staircases, dense woodlands trade space with geometric farms scapes, tiny Shinto shrines sprout like mushrooms in Noto forests. Villages seem to materialize from nowhere-wedged into valleys, perched atop hills, finessed into coastal corners. Pull over, climb out of your car, breathe deep for a taste of the finest air that will ever enter your lungs: green as a high mountain, salty and sweet, with just a whisper of decay in the finish.”
Biggest heartfelt thanks to Tyler from @trufflepigtravel
