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.

Dates: 9th Dec–10th Dec, 2019
Start/End Time: 9:00am – 10:00pm

    Are there any other links to the Sekino Boroichi Market (9th Dec–10th Dec, 2016 9:00am – 10:00pm) event to confirm it is happening? I was getting it confused with the Setagaya Boroichi Dori.
