Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Oedo is a great open air market in the tradition of the Japanese shrine sales. The selection of goods here is high and the vendors will bargain with you. Make sure you go only on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month. Prices can trend higher than shrine sales here but typically lower than antique markets.

There is an ATM in the International forum next to the convenient store (go down the escalator to find)

This was fun to browse at. I'm not familiar with Japanese antiques but I was able to get a Japanese Kimono jacket for 1000 yen. I should have bought more than one.

First time visited this large antique market. More than 100 booths and most of them are selling vintage stuff, including accessories, clothing, wooden and ceramic items. Staff are friendly and helpful. The market location was very convenient, just few minutes walk from the JR station.

I was really looking forward to go to this market and when I did o was not disappointed!
It's fairly easy to get there too!
It's outdoors so you see it very fast, there's a lot of stalls and very nice people!
You can find some souvenirs that you don't see every day! Pretty unique 😊
Is just a shame that if it's raining some will close and leave, that was what happened, but nevertheless if you are wondering about going, just go ahead and explore this place!

This market, which is held every second week (when it is not raining), is one of my favorite spots in Tokyo.
Last time i was here i found fantastic kimonos, happy coats, kokoshi dolls (also rare ones) and other great antiques.

I can’t think of any better spot for discovering all sorts of precious mementos of Japan. Without expensive overspending. This is not your pathetic Omotesando Oriental Bazaar ⛩”Fujiyama Geisha Plum Blossom” ⛩ schlock; it’s more an endless and often intimate look into the bits and pieces of people’s lives. Each piece feels it has a history all it’s own. And some dealers specialize in porcelains or kimono or toys, while many merely present a tableau of things they themselves find alluring.

No one should ever buy at the first quoted price at this market. Almost everything is subject to a discount normally up to 40% off the marked price. Frequently more. The first people who buy are the dealers themselves, who shop among their fellow dealers upon arrival at the site early in the morning. Obviously the prices o some items for sale have thereby already jumped up a notch or two by the time you find them. Don’t be shy about asking for wholesale prices if you’re buying a lot or can convince the seller you too are a dealer. I believe how you go about haggling can make all the difference. Be polite but firm, and keep in mind that many Japanese dealers will assess your knowledge of what you’re looking at through blabbering away about the item; they can often discern what you’re willing to pay or if you have no idea of an item’s going price. Some dealers don’t know much about many of the things they are selling.

Overseas shipping can be arranged if you can endure the rigmarole of asking the antique market organizers (sitting at a desk aside the stall area) to show you the procedures.

Early hour shoppers get the best array of choices; late hour shoppers get better discounts but lesser choices.

This is an antique market, not a flea market. However, there were items as low as ¥100 which you would put away as a unique souvenir from your visit to Japan/Tokyo, from the Meiji era. Highly recommended for people into fabrics, I have been to Kyoto and Osaka markets, and items here are on a par. There are definitely more pricey-definitely unique items that would be more expensive in other locations (home).

Lovely day out but prices are very high. Lots of kimono for sale etc. Similar things on each stall. Some variation would be better

My family and I enjoyed our trip here. Oedo Weekend Market is every, I think 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month. It starts as early as 8AM and from there, you can browse through various Japanese items.

Prices are so-so but if you know how to haggle, then do so.

We stopped by this market to check it out and we weren't disappointed.

Also, it's worth noting that if you're here and you plan on renting a Kimono (either male or female), the JNTO TIC (Tourist Information Center) is a walk away from this place. It's located at Shin-Tokyo Building and it opens at 9AM, if I remember correctly. Their kimono rentals are for FREE. We're a family of 7 and we all experienced being dressed in Kimonos!

This place was great to see. A large amount of stalls... maybe 75? Not the 250 I read once... Maybe didn't or fuzzy math...

Prices are antique shop prices... high..too high...
But isn't everything in Japan high...
One item guy wanted 15,000.
Mint on Ebay sold for $150 USD... his wasn't mint... maybe worth $80USD/8,000Y tops... Anyhow.

Some small maybe vintage age items are a little cheaper...

All in all fun to try and find the treasures... but bring cash...
