Seven Lucky Gods Pilgrimage

Free

From New Year’s Day and for the first ten days of the year you can join local tradition in visiting shrines of the Seven Lucky Gods.

There are different courses around Tokyo you can follow in the Yanaka, Nihonbashi and Shinagawa areas, among others. Read our full guide about the pilgrimage and the various routes around Tokyo.

There doesn’t appear to be an organized event as such, more of a solo cultural experience, but it’s a good opportunity to explore the city on foot.

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