Kyoto Temple Flea Markets

Kyoto has three flea markets, each attracting bargain hunters from around the country and abroad. The first market is known by locals as Tenjin-san and is located at Kitano Tenmangu Temple, in northern Kyoto. The second is called Kobo-san at Toji Temple, in south of the city and the last and smallest is Hyakumanben at Chion Temple across from Kyoto University. Items sold at these venues include traditional clothing and dolls, handmade fabrics and jewelry, antiques, paintings, food, and fresh vegetables. The price of goods at these markets is actually lower than downtown shops. Many people also frequent the flea markets for their traditional food treats. The markets are open air and start as early as 06:00.
