    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)!

    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?

    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). ^^

    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!

    PS Rei's quirky, gamin face is absolutely gorgeous. Was she your escort/guide around the markets or is she a model?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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!

    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..

    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!
