This is the main Hachiman in Tokyo, the shrine dedicated to theGod of war. In the precinct, there are two sets of stone monuments, monuments of Yokozuna and of Ozeki, top and second ranks of Sumo wrestlers.

We came partially to see the shrine, but mainly to visit the Sunday antiques market. The market proved to be much larger than expected. The many stalls varied between good quality antique pottery, bronze figures and pictures. There were also many stalls selling clothing and...More

Visited this shrine one summer afternoon with my 2nd-grader son. It is a rather big shrine in the downtown area Fukagawa; does not have serenity that you may seek in Kyoto shrines but has its own charm and popularity. I found that, like some shrines,...More

神社は閉門しないので、参拝は24H可能です。 社務所の営業時間は9:00-17:00ですので、ご朱印帳をもらうならこの時間帯に訪れることをお勧めします。

Flea markets, Antique Fair (2 Replies)
Hi, I did some research on some of these events taking place the weekend of 26th September. My greatest problem is finding out whether these are open on these days or not. Also whether these would have smaller gifts and not only expensive antiques. Something original I could buy as presents, although the main attractions is just the atmosphere and admiring antiques. 1. Yasukuni Shrine Antique Fair That would be my favourite to go but I think it is closed on 27th September? 2....More

I believe most of the temple and shrine markets are "antique" markets by vendors, not really flea markets (i.e, people selling their un-needed personal items). Somebody correct me if I am wrong. The best flea market is Jingu Gaien, next open on 5/09 Yokohama Nissan Stadium is open this weekend, 4/12, 400 vendors. In terms of vintage clothes, professional buyers invade the flea markets at opening, looking for brand vintage goods, which they buy, refurbish, and sell in secondhand...More
