The year-end tradition of the Kanto region’s rooster market. The red seal of the Eagle Shrine in Asakusa.

Around the time of the Bettara Market in October and the Rooster Market in November, I start to feel that the year is coming to an end. This is the time to start preparing for the next year by renewing your lucky charms.

They say that the situation in November and December affects the luck of the following year, so I think it is important to get the economy going at this time. They say that Edo people don’t bargain, but at this time of the year, it is chic to bargain and leave the original price on the table.

I heard that such common sense is no longer accepted by new residents, and bargaining is no longer acceptable for cheap goods.

This is only true if you buy from a rake shop in the precincts of the shrine, not from the shrine’s gift shop.

Although you won’t see it on the red seal, the bill attached to the rake has the Jindai script on it. (What’s inside the bill)
