I have been here in Kansai for a week. What better way to spend the Golden Week than by visiting the flea markets that abound?

The first one I visited was at the Kyocera Dome Osaka on Tuesday, May 2nd.

The flea market was at the same venue at the meat festival, hence the long queue outside.

If you were not going to the meat festival, you could skip the queue and head up. I thought to myself- this must be a big flea market, considering the size of this dome!!!! Much to my disappointment, there weren’t a lot of stalls. They didn’t even occupy half of the dome.
