Setagaya Boroichi Market I

★ Staff recommendation
9:00am – 9:00pm

The over-400-year-old Boroichi (rag market) takes place in Setagaya on January 15 and 16 and again at the end of the year on December 15 and 16.

What can I buy?

Boroichi is an enormous flea market at which more than 700 vendors sell a variety of used goods, antiques, handicrafts, religious artefacts, and food to approximately 200,000 visitors.

Any Cheapos looking to outfit their apartment, pick up an interesting Japanese knick-knack (think kokeshi dolls for ¥1,000), or just take some interesting photos should definitely take a look at this market. The market will be running from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with closing marked by exploding firecrackers.

How do I get there

The market is located on Boroichi Dōri which starts next to Kamimachi Station and runs through to Setagaya Station — both on the quaint, light rail Setagaya Line.
