Japan Market!

Like I said in my last post, at this time of year almost every weekend you’ll find some kind of awesome activity or event going on somewhere in Leiden. Today, all along the Rapenburg, there is a Japan market. This has become a yearly event in Leiden, and it is well worth going along for a stroll among the different stalls. From sushi to kimono, manga to ikebana, bonzai trees to lolita fashion, there’s (probably) something for everyone. Since the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, many of the stalls have started to send their proceeds to charitable organisations supporting the victims of the disaster, so it is definitely worth getting out a little extra cash at the ATM to support this good cause.

I’ve just got home from the market, and it was still going strong when I left. Most stalls will be there until around 4 or 5pm, and the Sieboldhuis is hosting some activities too, so you still have time to catch some food and culture if you hurry! Otherwise, you’ll just have to hold on until next year.
