Gokokuji Temple Flea Market – 護国寺骨董市

Antique Fair at Gokokuji Temple is held every month on the second Saturday. The next fair will be on November 9 2013. About 100 dealers open their stalls from early morning to 4 p.m. Looking around stalls and finding different items from ones you use in your country will be a fun and a good way to learn about different cultures and histories. The picture in the right is Fukusuke – a popular toy (in old Japan) in the shape of a dwarf with a big head used as an ornament and often seen as a shop sign. It was believed to bring luck. The temple was built at the wish of Keishoin the mother of the fifth shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi in 1681. Its main hall is the oldest wooden temple building in Tokyo which survived the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and WWII. It is worth seeing.
