Asakusa Tori-no-ichi Fair III

12:00am – 12:00am
Free

Tori-no-ichi is an annual traditional festival held at shrines and temples nationwide on three separate 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 occurs from midnight to midnight with ‘kumade’ rakes decorated with gold and silver sold by lively vendors in the shrine and temple compound.

Taiko drumming will signal the start of the event on November 27 at midnight.

This year, you must pre-register to join in any ceremonies or prayers. Website here (JP only).

This is the third and final part of the festival. There’s also:

  • Asakusa Tori-no-ichi Fair I
  • Asakusa Tori-no-ichi Fair II
  • You can make your wish for good luck while enjoying the atmosphere of Tokyo’s old downtown at this late fall/early winter event.

    Read our Tori no Ichi article for a more in depth look at the festival.

    To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
