Tokyo gets a bit quiet in August as people head back to their hometowns for Obon celebrations. Some Tokyoites say it's the best time to be here as the city gets a little quieter, and the trains less crowded. What it also means is that there's less of a fight over that last lovely red tomato at the August farmer's markets!
Saturday, August 13th and Sunday, August 14th*
*Careful on this one. The calendar says both days but the text at the top only lists one. Perhaps plan to head over the hill to Shibuya (a very pleasant walk) and the UN University Market, too.
Every Saturday (except for the 13th!)
10am to 2pm
Every Saturday and Sunday
10am to 4pm
Know of any other markets? Give me a shout!
