Day 19 of NaBloPoMo and continuing with a regular feature “Tokyo Thursday”.
On a recent trip to Tokyo to get my hair done in Toni & Guy, Aoyama branch, I had the most wonderful walk through Shibuya. So much to discover on even a short walk through Tokyo Streets. My most alarming find was the UNITED NATIONS UNIVERSITY. UNU! I had absolutely no idea such a place existed, least of all in the modern Aoyama region of Shibuya. When I got home, I was even more delighted when my research revealed that a farmer’s market is held there EVERY weekend.
Approximately 70 stalls, every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm at the United Nations University in Shibuya, 3 minute walk from the B2 exit of Omotesando underground. Phone: 03-5459-4934. URL: http://farmersmarkets.jp/ On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/farmersmarket.at.unu/?fref=ts
There are some great WORDPRESS blog posts in English about the market, with fantastic photos to boot:
There are quite a few posts and details on Stephanie’s blog, however, do note they are from 3 or 4 years ago. https://stephanietsai.wordpress.com/tag/unu-farmers-market/
Here’s a more recent post, in English:
