This is a friendly neighborhood festival with a fiery twist.
There will be plenty of sales of daruma dolls — from big to small (reservations are required for the big ones) — dances, and a bonfire to say goodbye to a pile of daruma dolls (around 300 to 500) who’ve completed their duties. The fire will be held from 3 p.m.
How to get there
From Shinjuku Station, take the Keio Line to Hashimoto Station (around 40 minutes) and from there change to the Sagami Line for Kamimizo Station (7 minutes). The market will be held just outside Kamimizo Honcho Self-Government Hall, 10 minutes from the station.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
