When: 24/01/15 - 25/01/15: All Day

Where: Kameido Tenjin Shrine, 3-6-1 Kameido

In a ceremony dating back to 1820, visitors wishing to gain good luck, success and happiness in the New Year come to Kameido Tenjin Shrine for the bullfinch exchange ritual. The bullfinch was historically believed to bring good luck—and luckily for the bullfinches, they’ve been replaced with figurines. Now patrons head to the shrine to exchange a bullfinch figurine from the previous year for a fresh one. Give your New Year a boost at this temple’s most revered ritual.
