Koganecho Bazaar

11:00am – 6:30pm
¥500 (advance sales)

The 9th Koganecho Bazaar will be held this October featuring artists a from across the world and Japan, with sculpting to photography and everything in-between. With a focus on every day life and community collaboration, the Bazaar has a wide variety of locations, works and stories. Originally held to celebrate the revitalisation of the area after it was cleared of hundreds of prostitution houses, the Bazaar has developed to use the city streets, reclaimed houses and specially built studio buildings to display artwork, hold talks and allow the public to explore the work of the artists. Selected to exhibit from across the world, the artists have all been hand-picked by the NGO responsible for revitalising the area for their ability to work with the local environment and current issues.

The two purpose built studio spaces are host to a shop and cafe as well as a work-spaces shared by four artists. Glass walkways allow for great views in-between and the riverside location makes it a stunning spot.

Running for just over a month, the Bazaar is closed on certain days so please check the website for details as they may change.
