Daikoku—a god of fortune, is offering up some good luck blessings to set your year off right at this traditional festival. Highlights of the festival include the following two events:
On Saturday, a bone-chilling (literally) purification ceremony will be performed—”coming-of-age” participants will douse themselves in ice water. Begins at 10am on the Saturday.
On Sunday, at noon, see hocho-shiki—a tradition in Japanese cuisine hailing from the Heian period—i.e. you’ll see a big carp sliced up real cool!
