Tokyo Antique Markets and Flea Markets

Fall 2021 Tokyo Antique and Flea Markets

Since the COVID SOE has been extended until the end of September many monthly antique sales have been canceled. There are a few remaining in September and the October dates are to be confirmed depending on the SOE.  Here is our updated list of Fall  2021 Tokyo Antique markets & Shrine Sales short but sweet. This list will be very fluid due to COVID uptick possibilities. Check each sale before attending.

PreCOVID there were between 25 -35 Tokyo Antique and Flea markets. Many markets are at temples or shrines which is why many Expats call them “shrine sales,”  others are at convention halls. You can find beautiful pottery, kimono fabrics, kokeshi dolls, furniture, and every knick-knack imaginable. Good luck and treasure on!

**Please note most outside Tokyo antique and flea markets are usually canceled when raining. Please double-check the info below at contact numbers/links to be 100% sure of the details.
