June 2019 Tokyo Antique and Flea Markets

June is a hit or miss month with Tokyo Antique and Flea Markets due to the rainy season. Although presently over 25 markets are planned for the month, please check directly with the planners about rain cancellations. One great thing about antique hunting in the summer months is that fewer customers attend due to the weather so you can find some great items. If you do head out remember to wear sunscreenmosquito repellent and also drink lots of water. Good luck and treasure on!

**Please note most outdoor markets are usually cancelled when raining. Please double-check info below at contact numbers/links to be 100% sure of details. — Best Living Japan Moms
