The "Tenjin-san" flea market is held on the 25th of every month at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. As many as 1000 stalls line up on the shrine precincts as well as in the area around the shrine. The majority of stalls sell clothing such as second-hand clothes, kimonos, etc. and antiques such as pottery and the like. There are also many places to eat, including food carts and stalls selling foods such as fruits, vegetables, etc. With its small-time festival atmosphere, it is sure to be a fun event to come out to with your family.
