As much as I love strolling through flea markets, winter is a challenging season for me to do so. Everything feels more difficult in winter, takes more time, more energy, don’t you think so? Last Sunday though I was determined to get into my boots for a 30 minute train ride and 25 minute walk to the Naritasankawagoebets
There had been snowfalls in the Kanto area that week, and as you can see from the pictures, “measures” have been taken to clear the pavement of the temple and make space for the stands. The weather was cold and glum but that giant mound of snow left there with its bulldozer made for an interesting sight to say the least.
This was my first visit to the Kawagoe Antique Fair. The event is held every 28 of the month, no matter on which day of the week it falls. Since it is an antique fair and not a flea market per se I didn’t have much expectations to find anything there, but it turned out to be a good field trip.
