能登半島 のとはんとう Noto Hantou (Noto Peninsula) Noto Peninsula is one of the most beautiful and picturesque places in Japan. Full of green Valleys, rolling hills, clear blue water, mountain rice fields like Senmaida in Wajima, Meiji and Edo Architecture, traditional Japanese festivals that have been continued for hundreds of years, and from Toyama Bay you can see the beautiful snow caped peaks of the Norther Japanese Alps. Clearly one of the most picturesque and beautiful places in Japan.

In total our home has 13 rooms, a spacious kitchen, and a garage. My wife and I are going to put a lot of reforms to the home. One of the first reforms will be a new entrance way doors and a garage door. We will also reform the electricity, make a new Japanese Irori, reform the kitchen, put in a new bath/shower unit in which my wife and would like to make it similar to Onsen style, reform the WC, and do some light reforms of the outside of the home.
