Daikoku Matsuri

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.

On Sunday, at noon, see hocho-shiki—a tradition in Japanese cuisine hailing from the Heian periodi.e. ceremonial slicing of a big carp by masters in the art.
