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.

Dates: 1st Jan–10th Jan, 2020
Entry: Free
Closest station(s): JR Ueno Station
Area: Asakusa, Nihonbashi, Shinagawa, Ueno, Yanaka

    Hey Aleš, this is the event that I was thinking of that was especially interesting and info-tastic. Thanks! Sorry I couldn’t remember the other night.

    The link is only in Japanese. Is there an English version?

      Do you mean the map link on the Yanaka page? I’m afraid we don’t know of any English materials for this. You could try asking at the Asakusa information center which is nearish to Yanaka.
