by chatterley

This annual event is held at the front of the Sensoji Temple each year, for 3 days (17 - 19 December), do not miss it if you are in Tokyo during this period! This is a traditional fair dating back to the Edo Period. During this Fair, there are many open-air stalls selling hagoita (battledores), shuttlecocks, kites and other New Year decorations, and many people gather here from all over the country.
