I came here for the flea market which is held on 25th of every month. Arriving at 9 am there were plenty of people, but not too packed. The mixture of stalls & the traditional shrine setting was a feast for the senses. It also...More
We visited in early March, so we got to see the grove of plum tress in bloom. There were hundreds of trees in bloom with white, pink, purple, and red flowers. Admission to the plum grove included kombucha (not the fermented kind, the salty kelp...More
The shrine is large, but not very different from other shrines. What makes it unique is the market that is happening there every 25th of the month. Street food, antiques, 2nd hand clothing, crafts and many many more for you to explore. Recommended.
I came for the market, which is held on the 25th of the month. It really is one of the best markets I have ever been to, with a huge range of goods. Best are the vintage clothes, which are very good prices.

A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many
shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.

About the Tenjin-san flea market, which spreads out in the streets all around the shrine compound, the Discover Kyoto website says that "Though it is held every month, the markets in January and December are the largest." I was there last March--and it really is big, with old, used, and regular commercial items available. A friend found a biwa (lute-like instrument) manuscript practice book from maybe the 1920s with biwa notation in it. It was really crowded, so put small children in strollers ...
