If you love Japanese antique kimono, and have a
time to visit Kiryu city in Gunma prefecture on the
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!

Maybe It takes about 30 minutes on foot.
There are approximately 80 stalls set up. I always get there about
