I want those sparkling converse…NOW!
April 27, 2010 at 3:22 pm
Amazing pics ! Must have been great !

I love the name "mottainai" flea market. Mottainai is a spectacularly descriptive Japanese word that unfortunately doesn't have an English counterpart. Loosely translated it means wasteful, but in reality it means so much more than that. These Japan photos make me so nostalgic (or natsukashii)!

April 27, 2010 at 3:58 pm
I want to be there rummaging…
April 27, 2010 at 4:24 pm
I agree… I want to know what you bought.
April 27, 2010 at 4:27 pm
such fascination with american culture.
April 27, 2010 at 4:29 pm
Even more photos of this flea market to make me jealous!! I love all the "Americana" available, but I would love to see some "old" Japanese items for sale. Everyone looks so happy here….is it a special event or something?
April 27, 2010 at 4:30 pm
Wow, that market looks so amazing!
April 27, 2010 at 4:31 pm
I need to be on a plane to Japan. It is all your doing.
April 27, 2010 at 4:42 pm
I hope you took the Coco-Cola tray…too good to leave!
April 27, 2010 at 4:45 pm
I really like the guy in the all in one.
April 27, 2010 at 4:55 pm
oh my goodness, she is my hero, and you have done her the utmost justice with your lovely photos. What an inspiration you both are!
April 27, 2010 at 5:07 pm
What kind of camera is she holding?
April 27, 2010 at 5:19 pm
Very colorful… otherwise, this woman looks atrocious.
April 27, 2010 at 5:38 pm
very nice optimistic colours.
April 27, 2010 at 5:45 pm
Rei has a great style and an even greater smile. :D I love those blues!
And yes, Gingerbread house purse. Reminds me of Emily Temple Cute (another Japanese lolita brand). ^^
April 27, 2010 at 5:56 pm
adoro l'idea di usare l NEVERFULL di LOUIS VUITTON come uno zaino!!!
April 27, 2010 at 6:16 pm

April 27, 2010 at 7:00 pm

i want nothing more than to go to this flea market
April 27, 2010 at 8:16 pm
Yeah, looks like so much fun.
Amazing pics, color, color, color!!
April 27, 2010 at 9:17 pm
I can't believe you stumbled across vintage american memorabilia!
April 27, 2010 at 9:35 pm
I like the lady in the pics. She looks like a pixie – naughty and cute!
April 27, 2010 at 10:38 pm
She looks like a young Yoko Ono :)
April 27, 2010 at 11:26 pm
Aw, Rei seems like the Japanese version of Amelie… too cute ;)
April 27, 2010 at 11:53 pm
I think you found your element, here!
April 28, 2010 at 12:27 am
I can't help but think the old man in the jean ensemble could be a cartoon character. His expression is so comical. And I love the house-purse in the fourth last photo!
April 28, 2010 at 12:48 am
PS Rei's quirky, gamin face is absolutely gorgeous. Was she your escort/guide around the markets or is she a model?Linda B.
April 28, 2010 at 3:30 am
Beautiful vivid colors and tone
kristina - no penny for them
April 28, 2010 at 4:00 am
wow, what a treasure chest! i do love this series you shot at the flea market – just brilliant.
April 28, 2010 at 4:24 am
Wish I was there!! So envious!
April 28, 2010 at 6:21 am
love all these pictures. so special…
April 28, 2010 at 7:16 am
haaaa!!! Louis Vuitton bag worn as a backpack! That's great sence of distance towards THE BRAND!LUV IT :)
April 28, 2010 at 9:15 am
The flea market, or at least your photographic representation of it, presents a very Americana affair. Seeing how people appropriate, and re-interpret Americana (or any other nationalist period from any place) is always interesting. I think Tokyo is particularly adept at owning, and adding a unique Japanese twist / aesthetic to events (flea market), and fashion.
April 28, 2010 at 10:20 am
hah the first photo is so cute!
April 28, 2010 at 11:08 am
The belt she is holding up with the gingham check dress is great – good eye! I also like that she isn't dressed in that strange little girl style – there's something creepy to me about that affectation.
April 28, 2010 at 11:47 am
These flea market pictures are quite wonderful except the one here in p.3 with the guy doing a peace sign. I can't put my finger on it, but he looked gross. Maybe it was the mustache.
April 28, 2010 at 12:03 pm
Very beautiful pictures!
And that converse shot is so lovely!
April 28, 2010 at 12:34 pm
I wish I were there!!The (im)Perfect Harmony
April 28, 2010 at 2:53 pm
Rei is my favorite subject of yours! She's got great style and energy.
Going to a flea market in Japan is a dream of mine, but I probably wouldn't fit into anything.
April 28, 2010 at 9:30 pm
I love the name of the market "mottainai". It means wasteful, but the connotation of the word is positive and it means that you shouldn't throw out the item since it's still useful. Someone's waste can be someone else's gem. You have great photos. I commented on the other post and I accidentally clicked "publish" many times…. I'm sorry. It wasn't intentional.
April 29, 2010 at 2:28 am
I *love* the girl in #4.
April 29, 2010 at 4:30 am
I love market. Great atmosphere!
April 29, 2010 at 7:18 pm
I love how the outfit of the girl in the 4th picture down seems to portray a character. I get a kind of antique-eclectic-country vibe here. So calm, so cute, so chic. Very unique but on her it just seems to work :)
April 29, 2010 at 7:21 pm
I loved those picturesssss
April 29, 2010 at 9:22 pm
Joanna Roman the very thing that caught my eye and made me chuckle. A Louis Vuitton tote bag worn as a backpack…clever and also so practical at a flea market , I'm sure! Love the photos of the day!
April 30, 2010 at 12:04 am
omg. these pictures are just like art work from any galleries in Chelsea. nice job.
Just me and my bon genre!

The elderly man in the blue overalls seriously killed someone… red stain marks all the way to the pocket.. i suspect that's where the murder weapon was placed.. murder she wrote, anyone?
love his look though, very comfy & blue..
April 30, 2010 at 1:07 pm
wowww… my stunning grandpa… ahahha….
May 1, 2010 at 9:08 am
lovely bohemican style!
May 3, 2010 at 7:17 am
the old man is beautifull
May 4, 2010 at 11:07 am
the 1st photo is very interesting. each peace of clothing on the girl looks like something a grandma could wear, but when put together in an outfit along with house on her neck it looks…unique, interesting, chic!

What an absolutely fabulous series of photos!
May 20, 2010 at 12:55 pm
I thought it was very unique how she carried her LV tote as a backpack! =)
July 3, 2010 at 5:41 am
great hat!!! works so well with the blue jacket!
July 8, 2010 at 8:24 pm
unique style in some of the photos..but then it is in Japan. They have crazy fashion there.

I really believe that she is the cutest woman on earth. I have a total girl crush on her.
