As you may all have noticed, I am crazy about flea markets. This was more than a month ago. I just didn’t have the time to post them up.

Like some Japanese flea markets, it’s not really the flea market that I imagined.  They weren’t exactly cheap.

Anyway here are some photos of that day. I strolled around half an hour. There were less than 50 stalls, half of them selling food. There really wasn’t much to buy.

Flea Market – Chofu. October 2015. Toys, accessories, and slippers made of kimono.

I was really interested in buying the slippers made of old kimono (top right). However, they cost around JPY2000 a pair. I probably can’t wear them outside my house, so I junked the idea of buying. They looked pretty though, but not worth JPY2000!!!!

I have nothing against brand new items. Sell them if you want, but why are the prices about the same as the prices of the goods in the mall?

Japan has mascots for everything. It’s a requirement.
