Category Flea Market


Autumn Book Fair is held by the Used Book Society of Kyoto which consists of many of Kyoto's used booksellers at Chion-ji Temple in Sakyo-ku, Kyoto city. Being one of the three used book sale events held every year in spring, summer and autumn, this event is held for about five days from the end of October to the beginning of November. Throughout the event, the usually quiet temple compound is transformed into the likes of a giant bookstore and crowded with many people. Activities such as charity auction and bookbinding are also held during the event.



The temple compound is lined with used books. Look for your favorite books while enjoying the atmosphere of the temple!
