Shinjuku Chuo Park Flea Market

9:00am – 3:00pm
Free

Said to be the place to go for all things vintage, this is a fairly large market just behind the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, a famous landmark and free viewpoint. It’s held 1-3 times a month, most months of the year.

Market times vary, with 10-3pm being a safe bet for scheduling. On some days, it starts at 9am and ends between 3:30 and 4pm—for early risers who don’t want to miss out on top treasures, you can always show up early and go for a coffee if nothing is happening yet.

Make sure to check the events page of the park beforehand in case of cancellations due to, e.g. rain.

    Kawaii Flea Market

    Taking place either in Nakano or Ikebukuro, this small flea market is punted at the ladies, though, in our experience, can be a good time for all genders. Check it out for previously-loved clothing, crafts, antiques and all sorts of […]
