Hagoita-ichi(ornamental battledore fair)
were held in 17, 18, 19/December/2010.
Hanetsuki is a kind of Japanese badminton that has been played since the Muromachi period (1338-1573).
Giving a hagoita to wish for a healthy child and celebrating spring with a game of hanetsuki are customs that reflect the Japanese people's warmth and sense of beauty. About 50 merchants set up shops to sell hagoita in the compound of Sensoji Temple today.
The hagoita (battledore) is decorated with various designs!
