Ome Daruma Market

1:30pm – 8:00pm
Free
Ome

On the old Ome Highway, just outside of Ome Station, daruma are sold in mass at the nearly 200-year-old Ome Daruma Market.

As well as stalls that are open from 1:30 p.m. until the evening, you can also watch daruma being burnt on the precincts of Sumiyoshi Shrine (a 3-minute walk from the station) — look out for a free gift if you offer up your own daruma doll. The burning will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

How to get there

Ome Station can be reached directly on the Chuo Line from Tokyo Station in under 1.5 hours and from Shinjuku Station in around an hour.
