“Mottainai” Flea Market in Gotanda
If you feel like spending the national holiday doing some bargain hunting why not check out this large indoor flea market? Mottainai can be roughly translated as “What a waste!” and is a phrase that encourages people to recycle, reuse and reduce waste. Mottainai flea markets are held regularly in the suburbs of Tokyo, including this irregularly held event inside the TOC building in Gotanda. Inside the Grand Hall on the 13th floor, the large space has room for up to 300 sellers (guaranteed protection from wind, rain and sunstroke!). This is a great chance to re-home unwanted items, clear out your own clutter or maybe pick up some more.
