Tenjin-san Market

Market in Northwest Kyoto

This sprawling flea market is held on the 25th of each month at Kitano Tenman-gū and marks the birthday (and coincidentally the death) of the Heian-era statesman Sugawara Michizane (845–903). It’s pleasant to explore the shrine before or after you do your shopping. You'll find loads of ceramics, second-hand kimonos, antiques and food stalls.
