Yoyogi Flea Market

Unlike Setagaya Boroichi, the Yoyogi Flea Market in the city’s central park is relatively youthful, though - with approximately 800 vendors and a reputation as Tokyo’s first official ‘flea market’ (Setagaya Boroichi is classed a rag market, ‘boro’ meaning cloth rag) - that doesn’t make it any less grand. Pitched up every month since 1981 by car-boot lovers with a recycling bent, a lot of what’s on sale comes from the vendors’ homes - unwanted tit-for-tat in need of a new lease of life. There’s also a strong youthful element, probably due to the relatively cheap pitching costs.
