Note as of September 1, 2021: This event has been suspended indefinitely due to the pandemic.
Tokorozawa Aviation Memorial Park hosts a flea market monthly, weather permitting. The market does not go ahead when it is raining or if there is any weather warnings in place. Furthermore, from 2021 you have to book in advance to visit the flea market as they are only allowing a certain amount of shoppers in each time. The flea market is held on the main avenue of the park, and there are generally about 200 stalls. The event is organized and run by Recycle Man who manages about 30 flea markets monthly in Saitama, Chiba, and Tokyo.
Tokorozawa Aviation Memorial Park is a beautifully landscaped park with great facilities for families. The Tokorozawa Aviation Museum is also on the grounds. The park hosts several events monthly. Tokorozawa Aviation Memorial Park is relatively close to the new Tokorozawa Sakura Town and the permanent TeamLab outdoor exhibition 'Digitized Nature'. Combine a visit to a traditional Japanese flea market and a typical Japanese park with a visit to a modern entertainment hot spot and an atypical park for a rounded day trip to Saitama!
