The available products sale depend on the vendor, but typical stalls feature antiques, used clothing (including kimonos), swords and handmade crafts.
As well as shopping, there are dozens of street food vendors serving up Osaka’s legendary street food, including takoyaki (fried octopus dumplings) and yakisoba (fried buckwheat noodles).
Flea markets are one of the few places that haggling is acceptable in Japan, and Shi-Tennoji is no exception. Ask politely and keep smiling and most vendors would likely lower their prices.
The market is held on the 21st and 22nd of every month. Stalls open at around 8.30am and trade until about 4.30pm.
