Sekino Boroichi Market

9:00am – 10:00pm
Free

Boroichi literally means ‘rag market’ but it’s more like an evening winter flea market.  For this particular boroichi, 80,000 visitors are expected to peruse 300 stalls selling everything from hot food to antiques.

The origins of the market go back to 1751 when the area was primarily an agricultural district serving the nearby metropolis of Edo.

The market takes place around the northern exit of Musashiseki Station on the Seibu Shinjuku Line.

Note: This event is not to be confused with the Setagaya Boroichi Market, one of Tokyo’s intangible folk cultural assets.
