Kitokito Marché

  • img

The Kitokito Market is held on the 3rd Sunday of every month from May to November at the Shinjo City Ecology Garden.

Many vendors will gather again this month.

There is a customary “Give Me Vegetables” system in which visitors bring in vegetables as an entrance fee and trade them for food.

As vegetables replace money, visitors can enjoy an all new experience created by values other than traditional currency.
