Held in the courtyard of Tokyo International Forum (check the website for exact dates), this is a brilliantly colourful event with hundreds of dealers in retro and antique Japanese goods, from old ceramics and kimono to kitsch plastic figurines and vintage movie posters.

There's also a good selection of stalls selling international collectables. If you're serious about shopping, count on spending at least a couple of hours here.
