Hagoita are rectangular bats similar to badminton, and is used for playing a traditional New Year's game. Now Hagoita are regarded as lucky objects.
Between Dec.17 and 19 every year, the Hagoita Fair takes place in Asakusa, Tokyo.
In the main hall of the Sensoji Temple, there are dozens of stalls to sell a wide range of hagoita, from beautiful decorative items to cool children's toys. As you shop, you`ll find hagoita adorned with kabuki actors, cartoon characters and sports stars.
This fair originates from a custom of wishing for young girls to grow up healthy.

All the shops are closed and the way to the place is completely deserted. However, we see some people having their evening walk. This is the first time I have seen this place without crowd and gives a different feel to it. A must visit place for anyone to have feel of Buddhist temple architecture in central Tokyo.
