Yeah, I have been to “TORINOICH” in Asakusa!
“TORINOICH” is a local festival held in many places around Tokyo in Nov. And the most famous is this one at Asakusa’s.
There are many stalls lining up and selling the good-luck charm “kumade“（Japanese pitchfork）and many people buy them.
It is said that “kumade” would “sweep in the good-luck to you” so even famous politicians, artists or big companies get them every year. For example, The Governor of Tokyo and the Sony are among them! （I wonder that it’s hard for the people other than Japanese to get it !? ）
