Hozuki-Ichi

This annual market is devoted to the flowering plant hozuki (also known as ground cherry pods), but visitors can also find traditional wind chimes and other summer specialties among the 100-plus stalls dotted around the Sensoji temple grounds and its environs. Stroll around the market to soak up the shitamachi atmosphere, and maybe stop by the temple itself on July 10th to offer a prayer, as it’s said one prayer made on this day is equivalent to praying for 46,000 days — that’s a whole lifetime’s worth!
