Wajima Kiriko Art Museum

Asaichi don, Kaisen don, and Noto Hikari rice are just a few delicacies tourists can try while in Wajima. This area has a long, powerful connection with the ocean, and for more than 1000 years, the people of Wajima have held the Kiriko Festival to honour the gods for bountiful harvests from land and the sea. See this cultural treasure at the Kiriko Art Museum, which houses the incredible 15-meter-tall Kiriko lanterns that are paraded through the streets in a huge local festival. Visiting the museum will give you an appreciation of the breath and energy locals put into every dish.
