Tori-no-ichi is an annual traditional festival held at shrines and temples nationwide on set days (rooster days) in November to wish for good luck and prosperity in business. The festival has been held in the Asakusa area since the Edo period at Ootori Shrine and Chokokuji Temple. The festivity continues until midnight with ‘kumade’ rakes decorated with gold and silver sold by lively vendors in the shrine and temple compound. You can make your wish for good luck while enjoying the atmosphere of Tokyo’s old downtown at this late fall/early winter event.
