Oedo Antique Flea Market
A couple of Sundays ago we headed off to the Oedo Antique Market (大江戸骨董市) at the Tokyo International Forum near Yurakucho Station. We were a bit worried that we would have similar luck as when we tried to go to the flea market in Harajuku which was no more. I was expecting something like the flea market in Shinagawa, but this was totally different. Instead of mostly junk and cheap prices, this place had really cool, real antiques, with prices to match.
If you are interested, you can get there easily from a number of stations, including Tokyo Station, Hibiya Station, and Ginza Station. We exited at the Hibiya Station and hung out in Hibiya Park, listening to music and enjoying the fine weather. Things begin at 9 a.m. on the first and third Sundays each month. Some stalls were closing up at around 3 even though it is supposed to last until 4 p.m.
