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.

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