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.

This is a very energetic area in general. The temple is very pretty to visit. There is shopping area all around the temple.
If you are looking to spend a day to chill and walk around as a tourist, this should be one of the places you go to.
Know that there are no JR lines that comes here and you have to use Subway line.

Very nice place and I would say the best place and temple/shrine in Tokyo.
Indeed it is very crowded but it is definitely a must see. Especially during night when the spotlights lighten the temple.

Shopping street is more likely tourist traps but you can find good last minute souvenirs there.

When in Tokyo you can't miss this temple, nor the streets and shops around it. Both first thing in the morning or just before closing time, pictures will look amazing, with the SkyTree in the background.
To fully enjoy it, please read a bit about its history and try and do the purifying ritual before going in. Once inside, standing next to the incense bowl or buying a charm to help your projects come true is highly recommendable to soak in the atmosphere.

Loved this experience! The market is so fun with great eats and items for sale. Temple is super cool too! I think it's pretty neat how the structures look relatively new, yet so old!

Beautiful temple with many tourist thins to do in its surroundings. We went early during the morning and not many people were there so we could take great photos and not too crowded. Between the temple and the temple's entrance or gate (very big construction), there is a shopping street where you can buy traditional snacks and sweets. It's highly recommendable and it's also free!
