If you love Japanese antique kimono, and have a 

time to visit Kiryu city in Gunma prefecture on the 

first Saturday!

Kiryu was famous for the textile industry, that’s why 

good for finding high-quality antique(secondhand) kimonos.

Besides, the prices are really reasonable.

For example, cheap kimono and obi(belt) are from \300~500,accesories like a Obihimo is from \100. 

You can find reasonable and beautiful one!

There are much more kimono and accessories for them than Oedo Antique market in Tokyo, I think.

I forgot to take pictures of kimonos… I’ll do that next time!

Date:

The first Saturday of every month from sunrise to sunset. In January and November, the dates may change to accommodate festivals.

Locatin:

Grounds of Tenmangu Shrine, Tenjincho 1 chome

Access;

5 minutes by car from JR Kiryu Station

Maybe It takes about 30 minutes on foot.

There are approximately 80 stalls set up.  I always get there about 

10AM, and feel “too late”.So if possible you should get there until 9AM!
