    Asakusa Tori no Ichi

    November 12 and  November 24, 2009

    Tori no Ichi festivals are celebrated in many shrine and temples throughout Japan.  In Asakusa the festival has been held since the Edo Period and is believed to have started in 1750.

     

    This festival is linked to the Buddhist Zodiac, which consist of twelve animal signs, starting with the rat, and followed by the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the sheep, the monkey, the rooster, the dog and finally the wild boar. The Japanese name for Rooster is Tori. According to the Junishi Calendar, which names the days after the twelve signs of the Chinese and Japanese Zodiac, the day of the Rooster (Tori) can occur twice or three times in the month of November and are called Ichinotori, Ninotori, and Sannotori. These are the days where people pray for good luck and prosperous business. In order to rake in this good fortune and wealth, golden and colorful rakes  or "Kumade" are sold in about 300 stall around the shrine. Kumade are made of bamboo and decorated with gold coins, "Koban", and masks.

    The festival continues until midnight and the give a great opportunity to experience the atmosphere of downtown Tokyo as it used to be in the past.
