To get to our final destination of Wakura Onsen we cycled over Nakujimamachi (Twin bridge Noto). As it was a Sunday, there were a number of groups of motorcyclists of all different types who passed us in both directions along the route.

From the rest spot before going over the bridge, we could see our final destination. We were saying “oh this will be easy.. it’s just following the road around the island.. “.
