LATE NOTICE, BUT…
Right now, in Ueno Park, there is a small event taking place. A number of stores have set up tents and are selling Japanese pottery. There are some cheap buys, basic thing and also some very beautiful pieces. One stall also has Korean pottery, which is stunning.
There is also a stall selling antique furniture and sake shop that is giving tastings of Tokyo-made sake for 100yen (you get a few tastes for your 100 yen too).
If you’re in the Ueno area, head towards the main gate of Ueno zoo, you won’t be able to miss the pottery stalls with the large blow-up yellow arch in front of them.
