Yesterday was the first "Kobo," or flea market that is held on the 21st of every month at Toji Temple in Kyoto.
Kyoto hosts many flea markets, two of which are well worth going to.
On the 21st of every month at Toji, you can find food, crafts, and antiques.
This Friday, on the 25th, in the north of the city at Kita no Tenmangu Shrine is another large flea market. Every 25th of the month, "Tenjin-san" - as the shrine is known - hosts an equally impressive flea market.
Here it is possible to find old kimono, lots of antiques, and more.
Go early: the good stuff gets sold first.
