Overview

Asakusa Toshi no Ichi is held on December 18th, a special festival day for Kannon, the Goddess of Mercy. It is known as the Hagoita Ichi (Battledore Fair) where they sell and display gorgeous Kabuki-themed battledores. During the Edo Period, it was a large market selling mainly New Year's goods and auspicious items at the temple. Eventually, the battledores became the most prominent as they are today. When a customer buys a battledore, the seller claps three times and cheers for the customer's good luck. It is a year-end tradition and scene from the Edo Period.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
