Matsuri Flea Market in Bangkok

Japan provides one-of-a-kind experiences, from gazing at Mount Fuji to taking the Shinkansen bullet train. One of the most enjoyable things you can also do in Japan is explore a flea market where you are treated to yummy street food and cute Japanese items.

With the Matsuri Flea Market, you won’t have to fly to Japan to be treated to such delights. This Japanese-themed market is scheduled to take place here in Bangkok, from December 8th to 10th.

You can enjoy exploring Japanese street food along with cultural Nihon things. We recommend checking out the Japanese vending machines, Gachapon. Or get an Ema, a traditional wooden plaque where you can inscribe a personal wish or prayer and hang in a shrine.
