Time Out says

The UNU Centre houses a permanent UN staff, hosts international conferences on global problems and offers classes. On the eighth floor is a good library for exploring human-rights issues and global concerns, while the galleries on the first and second floors are also worth checking out. At the weekends, the plaza outside the university hosts one of Tokyo's more popular farmers' markets.

What’s on

United Nations University Farmers' Market

  • Markets and fairs

The UNU farmers’ market is one of Tokyo’s longest running and best-attended markets. Taking place every weekend in front of the university’s Aoyama headquarters, this one always attracts a knowledgeable crowd. Organic and local fare is readily available every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, with the farmers themselves happy to provide details about their wares. Plus, there's always a few food trucks on hand if you wish to enjoy a quick meal.
