Oji Kumade Ichi (bamboo rake festival at Oji Shrine) 王子熊手市

Tori-no-Ichi, or the Rooster Fair, is held nationwide in November (some areas hold it in December) and people purchase a bamboo rake (kumade) to invite good-luck. Oji Shrine annually holds a Kumade-Ichi (rake fair) on December 6. Kumade is an ornamental rake made of bamboo, decorated with all the lucky charms such as okame (fat-face woman's mask), Ebisu-daikoku (one of the seven deities of good fortune), pine, bamboo, plum, crane and tortoise. So many gorgeous kumade in different size and shape will be displayed on the festival day. Venders cry out loud to attract customers and they celebrate with a handclap when a kumade is sold.
