Mononoke ichi (monster art flea market)

モノノケ市

Category Flea Market

0101mononoke

A somewhat odd flea market held in Kyoto. How is it odd you might say, and it is because of the items carried, as they all relate to "Youkai"(monster). Naturally many "Youkai" authors and groups with "Youkai" related activities from around the country gather in Kyoto, and then sell their original works that focus on "Youkai". Items include accessories, stuffed animals, pottery, bags, postcards from clothing, photo albums, paintings, even sake and juice, and "Youkai" are also here and there ...
From cute things that will make you laugh, to realistic ones that will surprise you, there are many highlights!
