Looking for some pre-weekend fun? Look no further than the Boroichi Market taking place this Thursday and Friday (Jan 15 and 16, respectively) in Setagaya. Peruse the stalls alongside 200,000 visitors to acquire anything from antiques to handicrafts, from used goods to religious artefacts.
If that wasn’t enough to fulfill your open market needs, try the Oedo Antique Market taking place this Sunday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. It’s Japan’s largest outdoor antique market, so you’re guaranteed to find something worth your yen — or at least have fun browsing.
Also going on is the culturally-enriching Furusato Festival at Tokyo Dome. It’s the final weekend to enjoy the best food and cultural performances from all over Japan. Did we mention that there will be over 100 varieties of regional craft beer? Yum!
And for any of you radio fans out there, don’t miss your chance to check out NHK’s Museum of Broadcasting. It’s on now until February 15, after which it will be closed for ‘winter renovations’.
