Here's an article on a Sunday flea market outside a temple. One of the most popular flea markets outside of Tokyo, in Saitama-ken.

It is a chilly Sunday morning. And it's pretty early.

Shoppers and browsers throng the famous flea market that is held on the 28th of every month at Naritasan Kawagoe Betsuin temple in Kawagoe.

Despite that, the precincts of Naritasan Kawagoe Betsuin are crowded with traders and bargain-hunters brought together by the temple's monthly open-air market.
