Saitama Antique Fair Saitama Super Arena June 2024

Information for the Kottou Antique Fair as well as the regular and large upcoming events at Saitama Super Arena, such as Saitama Reptile World, Little Mama Festa and the Japan Burger Championship in 2024.

First up, the Kottou Antique Fair. The Kottou Antique Fair, a very famous and well regarded large scale antique fair in Saitama, was on in 2023 for the first time in four years. However, it was on in October. This year, it is back to its rightful date for the first time in five years – in June – as it always was before the pandemic.

Kottou Antique Fair

The Kottou, 骨董, means antique in Japanese. So the antique antique fair! But is is also the word for knickknacks, bric-a-brac, curio, oddity and rarity. This fair is usually on during the rainy season, but it is also the season for antique fairs in Japan. The benefit of the one in the Super Arena is that it is indoors so you can escape the probability of rain! More than 200 antique shops / sellers participate in this fair annually.

This will be the 36th annual Kottou Antique Fair at the Saitama Super Arena. Although the 34th never actually went ahead due to the pandemic! It will be on, as always, on weekdays: Tuesday June 11th and Wednesday June 12th, between 11 am and 5 pm each day. It is held at the Community Arena, which is the main arena in the stadium.
