Come to the Notojima Te-Matsuri (のとじま手祭り), Noto’s favorite craft fair! The “creative arts fair” will be held in the We-Land Campground (Weランド) of Notojima on Saturday, October 16, and Sunday, October 17, from 10:00-16:00 on both days.
This casual art fair is fairly small, but it’s a good chance to get gifts and omiyage from the Noto/Ishikawa and to support local artists. The arts and crafts represented are glass, lacquerware, woodwork, gold, ceramics, fabric and woven goods, cloth goods, and leather goods. There will also be food booths. (Last year, there were hot noodles and handmade sweets and coffee.)
From the north, take the 249 to the 256 to the bridge to Notojima; from Nanao, take the 47 to the bridge to Notojima. Follow the signs to We-Land Campground. Free parking on site.
