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, Shinjuku, Nihonbashi and Shinagawa areas.

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

    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.

  2. 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.
