Nishiogikubo is usually busy with visitors during the weekends but today was particularly busy due to an exciting event happening over this weekend.
It was our first time to participate in the local community event called Nishiogi Chasampo. We have timed our monthly event, factoria market to match Nishiogi Chasampo this weekend, 3rd and 4th June 2017 and open from 11am to 7pm.
Nishiogi Chasampo is a city wide event, participated by over 100 local shops and restaurants, providing special workshops, deals and samples to take home. The idea is to turn Nishiogikubo stroll a fun experience.
As usual, factoria market had full of passionate people exhibiting and selling their creations. For the first day, here are honourable mentions.
