21 Links to Search for Used Items From Japan, via Flea Markets, Recycle Shops, and Auction Sites

Updated: Oct 6, 2020

Want to hunt for preloved anime figures or streetwear with incredibly low prices? Want to search for a part for your Toyota car? Or even an old antique watch, and old vinyl records? Searching for these products from Japan is definitely the best choice.

Basically, these are the websites that you can peruse:

  1. Flea market: For example, MERCARI and FRIL. Both the sellers and buyers are individuals. We definitely recommend you to take a look at MERCARI first as it is a huge market. Everyone in Japan is selling just about anything you could imagine.

  2. Recycle shop: For example, HARDOFF and 2nd Street. The sellers are usually the corporations. So, negotiations on price are non-existent. These 2 websites offer a massive range of items, and since they have their own physical stores, you can rest assured that all the used items they sell are authentic.

  3. Auction site: For example, Yahoo Auction. The highest bid wins!

Below is a list for each category.
