If you are in Kyoto (November 15th 2016 (actually every 15th)), visit Chionji Temple, also known as Hyakumanben to experience one of the best flea markets in Kyoto.
This market can be the best place to seek unique souvenirs and gifts, since almost all of the stores sell hand-made goods including Kyoto themed bamboo crafts, cloths, accessories, wallets, interior goods and so on. Additionally, you can enjoy many home made snacks as well.
If you do visit this flea market, it is a good idea to also visit Shimogamo Shrine since they are in the same area.
This flea market is open from 8:00 to the sunset.
Or if you rather want to read the guidebook on your Kindle e-book reader or application, then get our Kyoto e-Guidebook on Amazon instead.
