The Tori no Ichi market is held annually in November at Otori Shrines across Japan. With 600,000 visitors, Hanazono Shrine's Tori no Ichi is one of Edo's Big Three Tori no Ichi along with the Asakusa Tori no Ichi and Okunitama Shrine Tori no Ichi (in Fuchu). Stalls sell decorative kumade rakes for business prosperity and you can hear the sellers shouting and clapping good wishes for customers until late night. Once you buy a kumade rake, they say that you should buy a larger one each year. So it is best to buy a small one first. The shrine also has an unusual freak show theater.
