Hanazono-Jinja Shrine Kottouichi 花園神社 青空骨董市
Hanazono-Jinja Shrine hosts the Kottouichi Antique Market on every Sunday unless it rains. The Sunday we went was raining in the morning but we decided to go check it out anyways. Surprisingly there were a few booths opened so we lucked out and got to see some antiques. If you were to ever buy anything second hand or antique, Japan's would be best because everything is clean and in great condition!
There's so much variety in the antique market so you never know what you'll find. Some household items like small plates and cups are reasonably priced. We saw some really expensive jade and I was surprised it was just sitting there unattended. You get to see a lot of culture and old Japan at these antique markets and you can visit the shrine too! One thing to keep in mind if you buy these antiques, you probably need to prepare a box and wrap it before bringing it back home because they just sell it as is.
We didn't buy anything but I thought it was still pretty cool to see old antiques in this modern city, Tokyo! There's a ton of other antique markets happening on weekends and this is one of the smaller ones. You can check out the Antique & Flea Markets in Tokyo and see what's happening near you!
