The ancient city of Kyoto has a bounty of quality antiques and second-hand items handed down for generations, some of which are from centuries ago. The tour will visit two representative  historic flea markets, regularly held on the 21st and 25th of each month.

Highlights

We customarily have days called the en-nichi day, when festivals or street stalls are open in commemoration of historic figures of Buddhism or Shintoism. On the 21st and 25th of every month, such events are held at Toji Temple and Kitano-temmangu Shrine respectively. On each day, various kinds of antiques and second-hand items, such as kimono, ancient coins from centuries ago, abacuses, bottle openers, old records and jackets, etc. can be found. The guide will tell you about the historic background of each flea market and about the unique items of which you cannot imagine their use.
