Seasonal Delicacies

The seas around Noto are
a seafood treasury

Residents feel the seasons according to the type of seafood caught: sea bream and the now-rare isaza fish in spring, abalone and turban shell in summer, the especially tasty seafood caught by trawl nets in the fall, and Kano crabs and fattened yellowtails in the winter.
