The Oedo Antique Market is arguably the most well-known in Tokyo. The market began in September 2003 to celebrate 400 years since the start of the Tokugawa shogunate and Tokyo as the de facto capital of Japan. Whereas other antique markets are a mix of handcrafted goods and food stalls, Oedo Antique Market is almost uniquely antiques—and the price tags of some of the rarer items may have some making a double-take. But for antique lovers, or even those in search of something truly unique, then the market is a must. Once you’ve scoured the stalls, you can make the 5-minute walk to Ginza and stroll down the pedestrianized Chuo-Dori, but note that every now and again the market is held in Keyaki Street near the events area of Yoyogi Park instead.
