“Rake in” money and luck on the Rooster’s Days
The Rooster’s Day Fair at Asakusa is an annual event held since the early Edo period in the 17th century.
It is a festival to pray for good luck, prosperity and good business on the days of the Rooster in November.
(Did you know that it is not only years but also days that have twelve zodiac animals in the old calendar used in China, Japan and elsewhere in East Asia?)
