“Mottainai” Flea Market in Nakano
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, with one of the new locations being at the fashionable Nakano Central Park located just minutes from Nakano Station. This is a good chance to re-home some unwanted items or clear out your own clutter. Several cafes and restaurants are located around the park so tired out shoppers (or reluctantly accompanying friends and family members) can relax and enjoy a wide selection of food and beverages amid the bargain hunting.
