    TOSHI-NO ICHI AND HAGOITA ICHI (Year End Fair)
    ASAKUSA - SENSOJI TEMPLE (DEC. 17 - 19)

    The Hagoita-Ichi (Battledore Fair) is an annual fair held in its precincts at the end of the year. Near the Hondo or main hall of Senso-ji Temple, some 50 open-air stalls selling hagoita (battledores), shuttlecocks, kites and other New Year decorations stand huddled together, and numerous people gather here from all over the country. This is a traditional fair dating back to the Edo Period, but it was apparently only after World War II that the name Hagoita-Ichi became popular. It is usually displayed in the house as a New Year's ornament.
