Sticking to “Noto” and its Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems

Noto is a global focal point valued for its varied nature and wisdom.

The sea and mountains of the Noto Peninsula were certified as the nation's first Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems in June 2011. The sea and mountains of Noto are global treasures to be maintained for the future in order to utilize the agriculture, forestry, and fisheries industries in harmony with nature.

The "Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems Project" was started by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an international organization aiming at ensuring foods, in 2002 to leave globally important farming regions for posterity. The organization certifies traditional agriculture and farming methods, the usage of environments that maintain life's diversity, and land with the agricultural culture and community maintained.
