Toka Machi Market Hikawa

Once a year in December, the famous Hikawa shrine in Saitama (north of Tokyo) holds the Toka Machi Market, the ‘10th day market’. This event coincides with the Daitosai, a ritual ceremony held at the Musashi Ichi-no-miya Hikawa Shrine on the 10th of December. It also plays host to over 1,300 street booths selling food and other articles as well as these gorgeous good luck rakes that can cost, for the most expensive ones, up to 500 USD!
