Year-end fair held every year on the 17, 18, and 19 December in Sensoji and the surrounding area famous for the selling hagoita, a rectangular board use to play “hanetsuki”. This is a Japanese game 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 like badminton. 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.
