An easily accessible, sheltered flea market surrounded by ramen restaurants and other eateries—making for a relaxed and enjoyable day out in Tokyo.
Chock-full of everything from used clothing to kitchen utensils and electronics, partly sheltered in case of inclement weather (so it happens even on rainy days), and surrounded by a slew of restaurants, you could describe it as random or as colorful, depending on your outlook on things. You might walk away with a beautiful new vintage dress and matching hair pins, or with an antique tea set, or with some cheap kitchen utensils. Junk and treasures are both ample here.
While close to the station, the market can be a bit hard to find at first, so follow the crowds that look like other flea market patrons if in doubt.
This market takes place on most Sundays throughout the year.
