Akasaka Nomino-Ichi

A flea market held once a month where unique antiques come together

The "Akasaka Flea Market" is based on the theme of "a product selection that matches urban lifestyles," and gathers together antique sundries, vintage fashion, jewelry craft items, and features over 70 shops each time. There are many shops that have a retro Western-style selection and rows of unique items fill the plaza. At the table of "SOUVENIR de PARIS," which handles European antiques, they also have bowls that are well suited to Japanese cuisine. We hope you'll find the perfect item for you here.

Hills Marche

An airy urban marché
rooted in everyday life

2018 will be the 9th year of the "Hills Marché." It is held even on rainy days and is cherished by neighborhood residents as one of the few spots where they can get fresh food. Local producers bring around vegetables, marine products, processed foods and entrees they are proud of. It is nice to be able to ask directly about any product you're interested in. At the "Kyodo Natural Food Center," which sets up shop every week, there are even seasonal flower bouquets availableat reasonable prices. Try choosing a little bouquet to decorate spring with.
