“Toka Ebisu” is an event that visits “Ebisu-sama” (Ebessan), the god of business prosperity, abundance and fishing, and wishes for this year’s fortune.
January 9th is called “Yoi Ebisu”, 10th is called “Hon Ebisu”, and 11th is called “Nokori fuku”, this event is held on 3 days every year.
In the shrine, the atmosphere is very livery. Many people come to buy lucky charms and visit night shops nearby.
