  • Did you know, second to oil, the clothing and textile industry is the largest polluter in the world?

    One way that we, as consumers, can make a difference is by extending the life of our clothes and giving already existing cloths a new home. Through swapping events, we can reduce our impact on the environment and save money.

    If you have any unwanted clothing, accessories or small household items, join us at FabCafe MTRL (2F) for an afternoon of swapping and networking with local people who are passionate about sustainability.


If you have items to swap, please arrive between 12PM-2PM.
From 12PM-2PM, you will have first dibs on the swap items available!

From 2PM to 4PM, the swap shop will open to non-swappers and remaining items will available for unlimited pickup.

Cost: ¥1000 (for donators, swappers, anybody and everybody)

What to bring to swap:

All items must be clean and undamaged (no rips, stains, holes, etc.). Only bring your best items which you would be happy to receive yourself! Please no electrical items, underwear, swimwear, bedding or sheets or medium or large furniture.

  • Swap Stories Tokyo is a Tokyo-based, globally-minded initiative that aims to bring people together through a collective ownership of things. We believe that for sustainability to truly become a part of all our lives, it needs to be accessible, shareable and fun. We organize clothing swap events in Tokyo to help people connect better with each other and with our planet.
