Kimono and Obi Charity Jumble Sale

10:00am – 4:00pm
Free

A rummage sale with a Japanese twist, this event will have plenty of second-hand kimono and obi (the belts that go with them) for sale. Raising money for a retreat for the children of Fukushima, all donations will go to a good cause. There will be fair trade coffee from East Timor and other drinks available too, so you can have a good wander on a Saturday morning.

The event will be held at Shomyoan, opposite Kiyosumi Teien, by Honseiji temple. It is best reached from Kiyosumi Shirakawa station, exit A1.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
