Year-end fair held in Sensoji and the surrounding area famous for the selling hagoita, a rectangular board use to play “hanetsuki”. This is a Japanese game similar to badminton where either one person keeps a shuttlecock in the air for as long as possible with a paddle (“hagoita”) or two people hit the shuttlecock by back and forth between themselves. Many of the hagoita for sale at the fair, however, are elaborately decorated with kabuki stars and celebrities, and meant to be used as ornaments.
