  • 1000-day worship & physalis market

    23-24 June 2017
    Atago Shrine

     

    ◆Physalis market

    At this annual festival, a physalis market is also held in the shrine precincts. It was at this shrine that the physalis market was first started during the Edo period (the now more famous one, held at Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa, followed suit). The ornamental plant used to be valued for its medicinal virtues.

    With the lantern-shaped papery flowers of physalis, feel the arrival of summer in Japan.
