  • I went by metro. When I was lost at the exit of the metro, the part-time worker (who had put the name tag down from my neck) and the people in the city realized that I didn't speak French, and they asked me at the counter at the station. As in other places, metro station staff and Parisians are very kind and talk to you when you're lost. Helpful. As soon as i went outside, I saw a flea market tent, so it was easy to understand. I liked antiques and had something i wanted to buy, so I felt quite a good idea. The free toilet was in the place where it entered the street in the middle side a little.

  • In addition to Vanves, there are several famous flea markets in Paris, such as Clignancourt, but I think this van veis is just right size for Japanese tourists. In the guidebook, there are announcements such as "relatively small", so I didn't have high expectations, but if you walk and look at each shop and pick up the goods, you'll soon have time. The main time of flea market is from opening to noon, so even in this Vanve, there was not enough time to look around each shop. I thought it was just the right size. There were many jewelry that seemed to be antiques (but the price started at around 50 euros), and I got the impression that there were many tableware such as silverware. In addition, the stance of each shop on the products was various impressions. I recommend good goods with confidence, but the price negotiation was severe, and there was a shop which sold it while discounting the thing of the souvenir level, too. In any case, we had a very pleasant time immersing ourselves in the local atmosphere. I bought art and accessories. After returning to Japan, I found that art was the object of a very famous artist.
