Zero-CO2-Emissions
with Nissan’s Ultra Compact 2-Seat Mobility Vehicle

 
Nissan’s New Mobility Concept is an ultra-compact, 100% electric vehicle that was developed in response to the increasing use of automobiles for short-distance trips by up to two people. This vehicle meets the needs of Kaga’s spa-towns, which can sometimes require independent transport due to their rambling nature and limited public transportation options. In Kaga City, although there are many wonderful spots for tourists, visiting all those places in each town by bicycle or bus is not so easy. This Nuku-Mobi ride will easily transport you and your traveling companion from one place to another, in and around the spa-towns to see the various sights for scenery, museums, local specialty shops, cafes for original sweets, or restaurants for seafood. Check what Kaga City features for the time you plan to visit the city. Two specialties include Kaga Parfet and Kaga Kaisendon. Kaga Parfet is a special sweet to be enjoyed at 3-o’clock, utilizing 5-layered local ingredients: colorful jelly, whipped honey cream, vegetable sponge cake, puffed grain, broccoli ice cream, pumpkin ice cream, onsen-boiled eggs, and served with Kaga-Bocha tea.

The Spa-Towns
Each Have Their Own Nuku-Mobi!

 
Kaga Kaisendon, the 10 original seafood-bowl dishes utilize assorted raw seafood such as Ama-ebi sweet shrimp, squid, and Nodoguro Rosy seabass among others. All the bowls look tasty and fresh. Hashitate-Gyoko is the nearby fishing port of the spa-towns. If you are curious about the port, stop by for a visit! It’s just 4 kilometers from Katayamazu-Onsen, and 12 kilometers from Yamashiro. Even from Yamanaka, which is near the mountains, it’s just 20 kilometers to get to the Sea of Japan. The spa-towns each have their own Nuku-Mobi rides with distinct designs. Yamashiro-Onsen has two Nuku-Mobi with its mascot “Spa-Crow” painted on the body, while Yamanaka’s two cars are covered with a beautiful lacquer-ware motif design. Katayamazu has four vehicles with its mascot, a mallard called Kamoyan, among other designs.

Eco-Nori Coupon
Includes Admission

 
Before renting the electric vehicle, please note that there is a voucher called “Eco-Nori Coupon for Nuku-Mobi” entitling the holders to a discount off the rental fee. The 2000-yen coupon covers a three-hour rental fee, and provides free-admission to two public bathhouses or museums. You are also allowed to sample two local sweets for free, such as soft serve ice cream, melon-pan (melon-shaped sweet buns), or onsen-manju (steamed buns typically sold in spa-towns). Please note that a Nuku-Mobi rental using this coupon is available only for the day it’s issued, but for free-admission or for the free sampling of sweets, you can use this coupon on the following day as well. Furthermore, sending an email to the project office, or posting pics to various social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) can entitle you to a three-hour rental for just 500 yen! Ask a staff member about it when you rent it! This coupon is purchasable even for those who won’t stay at an accommodation in one of Kaga’s spa-towns. The city of Kaga is well known as one of Ishikawa’s superb spa-towns. They offer something new and fun to their visitors so that they will never get bored. Who knows what their next project will be!

They are located in 33 countries and 120 regions, and Japan has 8 areas that are included. Nationally, 35 other domestic areas such as the Hakusan Tedorigawa Geopark are recognized as Japanese Geoparks.
