Naritasan Betsuin Flea Market


Every 28th day of the month, no matter what day, there is a flea market at Naritasan Betsuin Temple in Kawagoe. It’s my luck that April 28th falls on a Sunday and it’s a beautiful spring day. The light is stark and bright.



The flea market is fantastic. There are many textiles to choose from, but I’m looking for Boro which is highly collectable.



I find it!
