Noto Hant? Quasi-National Park (, Noto-hant? Kokutei K?en) is a quasi-national park covering a portion of Noto Peninsula of Ishikawa Prefecture and Toyama Prefecture in Japan. It is rated a protected landscape (category V) according to the IUCN.[2]

Noto Peninsula (?, Noto Hant?) in the northern half of Ishikawa Prefecture, extends about 100 kilometers into the Sea of Japan. The peninsula is known for its coastal scenery and rural atmosphere. The Quasi-National Park covers much of the coastline, one side of which faces Toyama Bay and other side of which faces the Sea of Japan.[3]

The borders of the park span the municipalities of Nanao, Suzu, Wajima, Hakui, Anamizu, Noto, Shika, H?datsushimizu and Nakanoto in Ishikawa Prefecture and Toyama and Himi in Toyama Prefecture.

Like all Quasi-National Parks of Japan, Noto Hant? Quasi-National Park is managed by the local prefectural governments.[1]
