This photograph is taken on Sunday of this spring in Meiji Park in Tokyo. Booth of the market had ranked with the site of the park by width with a sufficient degree tightly. An exhibition participant carries goods by car and is displaying them on a sheet. If it sees well, overwhelmingly, there is much used clothing and it is sold at the cheap price. There was also a place which sells a curio and accessories. The seller and the buyer are negotiating for goods leisurely. Such a free market is sometimes opened in various places. It seems to enjoy atmosphere although a seller also seldom becomes earnings.

nice the reportage shot from the city with all these vendors to sell their merchandises in very low prices to the other visitors of the free market of Sunday.As i see a lot of people are interesting for this market and some of them buy some of them.

I do not expect to see the free market in Tokyo. This is exactly as in France. The scene of vendors and customers is interesting. The picture is excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Interesting local scene
Not so easy to take such pictures with crowd.
The presence of the two lovely girls gives a nice attraction to your composition

This is an interesting and lively photo. The two women make this second-hand market look like a fashion show. I like the dress worn by the nearest woman. It looks very elegant and suits her well.

Excellent composition, very nice colors, and sharpness. Pretty and very interesting postcard.
In Lisbon there is also a similar market since 1903

The most "busy" picture in your gallery, Mikio.
Yet, managed a fine light and clarity management, when so many people around, on a constant move.
faces expression also interesting to look at.
Good evening from Israel,

Hi Mikio !!
your photos of people are always very good..... and in my opinion this is one of the best...... as you got the two ladies at close range.
Nice soft colours and good facial expressions.
yes..... it is very hard for the vendors to make good money
have a nice week end.
