Wajima Port, Photo by Jeri

We spent three days in Wajima exploring the outskirts by van and seeing the coastal landscape and the paddy fields. During this season, the greens are just beautiful in the Noto Peninsula.

Here are just some of the thoughts our group has to offer about the experience.

Jeri shares her impressions about the ocean, zen temples, lacquerwares and more.


Cindy truly appreciated the time we spent together and expresses her gratitude about the trip:


Scott talks about his morning walk through the fishing neighborhood. We went out together one morning exploring as much as we could before breakfast:


Tom shares about his walk to the port as well as to the fishing neighborhood and about why he found this area the most inspiring in terms of photographing:


Lauren has observations about living in such a different environment. During our visit to Kami-Ozawa, she encountered  two older ladies living in a neighborhood of only 20 houses. For her, thinking about this life was simply mind-blowing and something most of us are not used to:


I immensely enjoyed photographing in Wajima. It was really refreshing to be up early in the morning and walk around the port. This is where I photographed most during the trip. I also comment on something I learned about one of the fishing villages we visited:
