Held ten times a year, except for September and January, the Antique Market at Hakozakigu Shrine’s approach is the largest of its kind in Western Japan. Over 200 shops line the 700-meter-long pathway leading to the sea, dealing in various items such as old tools, miscellaneous goods, and practical antiques. The shops begin opening sequentially from 7 a.m., and by 8 a.m., most stores are ready for business. Good items are first come, first served! Rise early and head out.
