Asakusa Toshi no Ichi 9/11 2015 is the Year of the Sheep so some stand were selling various sheep or ram figures as "engimono" (good luck charms) #Asakusa, #Toshi, #Ichi, #sheep, #ram December 17, 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

Asakusa Tori no Ichi IV 1/11 Last day of this year's Tori no Ichi fair/festival in Asakusa's Otori Jinja Shrine and once again we went by our friends from Matsushita Shoten. Notice their huge "2-shaku" (shaku is an old measure unit roughly equal to one foot) hanging in the center and waiting for one of Matsushita's most loyal customers. #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Otori, #Jinja, #Matsushita, #kumade November 22, 2014 © Grigoris A.

Asakusa Tori no Ichi IV 9/11 For those on a very tight budget, some makers had created really tiny kumade! #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Otori, #Jinja, #kumade November 22, 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

Asakusa Tori no Ichi 5/8 The ceremony is over but there is a huge crowd waiting to pray at the Otori Jinja even though it is now after 00:00 -this is how the crowd looks from inside the shrine (the chicken wire is to stop the coins thrown to the saisenbako collection box reach the actual shrine). #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Otori, #Jinja, #saisenbako, November 9, 2014 © Grigoris A.

Asakusa Tori no Ichi 1/8 At the entrance of the Otori Jinja shrine in NW Asakusa/Senzoku, the tobishoku workers are unveiling the big kumade, symbol of the fair/festival that will start in a few hours. #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Kumade, #Otori, #Senzoku November 9, 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

Asakusa Tori no Ichi II 11/12 Since the kumade are mostly sold to businesses, one of the most amusing sights in the Tori no Ichi is the huge delegations of company employees coming to buy them: a lesson in group dynamics and intra-company relationships! #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #kumade November 10, 2014 © Grigoris A.

Asakusa Tori no Ichi IV 5/11 Some of the kumade makers use really big bamboo to mount their kumade! #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Otori, #Jinja, #kumade, #bamboo November 22, 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

Asakusa Oiran Dochu 14/19 Especially for this parade, the oiran were followed by a group of Asakusa's "geisha light" or "furisode-san" #Asakusa, #Oiran, #Dochu, #furisode November 9 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

Asakusa Tori no Ichi IV 8/11 Like most talismans, kumade are supposed to last one year so in the entrance of Otori Jinja there was a receptacle for those wanting to dispose of the kumade they bought last year. The circle of life... #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Otori, #Jinja, #kumade November 22, 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis

Asakusa Tori no Ichi II 9/12 Things were no less busy at the Matshushita honten (i.e. main store): the guys were taking down and handling kumade non-stop! #Asakusa, #Tori, #Ichi, #Matshushita, #kumade November 10, 2014 © Grigoris A. Miliaresis
