As the name suggests, this little market is all about reducing waste and wastefulness—the perfect antidote to Tokyo’s shop-till-you-drop culture. It’s a good place to pick up snazzy secondhand clothes for cheap-cheap, as well as DVDs, CDs (remember those?), books and other odds and ends. A chilled event worth dropping by if you’re in the area.

The market moves around Tokyo, sometimes even over the same weekend. Check the location below. The time is usually 10am-4pm, give or take an hour or two.
