Kyoto | Kitano Tenmangu Antique Market

It has been a long time since I have had a chance to visit my favorite flea market in Japan. The Kitano Tenmangu market is held on the temple grounds on the 25th of each month. Not only is it a good place to pick up rare items, and browse through Japanese history. It is also a place where a wealth of knowledge is sitting in silence.

Speaking to the people who run the individual booths can help shed some light. The more you see the more you learn. From Kakishibu to Katagami  you can find almost anything related to Japanese textiles. Craftspeople often have their goods and some are eager to share their wealth of knowledge with people that have an interest. One of my favorite visions of this place is through Kapital.
