Story & Recommendation
This Fair is Sure to Make Antique Connoisseurs Cry with Delight
Antique connoisseurs visiting Kyoto in March, June, July, or October rejoice! One of the biggest antique fairs in western Japan, Kyoto Grand Antique Fair, takes place right here in Kyoto. Even compared to other antique fairs, the scale of the antique fair is huge. There are 1.5 million items on sale under one roof! There are of course Japanese antiques, but also on sale are western antiques, vintage accessories, retro furniture, kimonos…. all treasures you can find only at the Kyoto Grand Antique Fair. Beyond doubt the best part is when you enter the fair and take into your eyes the sight of hundreds of shops lining up in front of you. Antique lovers cannot miss this fair! The fair hall is full of life. The mood is cheerful and festive, almost market-like, and you can hear lively chatter of people negotiating prices coming from the stalls. It is a fun experience even if you don’t plan to buy anything, but for antique lovers it is something you cannot miss!

・A lot of people are going to the fair so it will be crowded. If you want to find something nice we recommend you get there early. My personal recommendation would be to be there when the fair starts at 10AM on the first day. ・The fair hall is crowded with people and there are also a lot of people lining up to the shops so the passageways between the shops can get really crowded. Those with children or big luggage with them should keep this in mind.
