This was a local Sunday market. It wasn't a show for tourists but local people buying and selling their produce. I loved walking up and down and looking at the strange things on offer. It's mostly food and some beautiful plants but you can also...More
The market has many unfamiliar items for the non Japanese. You could walk through without hassle . There were no people pestering you to buy anything and if you stopped and asked for anything people were so helpful.
