〜Asakusa’s Hagoita Festival〜

Hi everyone!

I’m  Mari from Sakura-An👩🏻🌸



Today, let’s talk about Asakusa’s festive tradition – the Hagoita Festival!


Happening every December, this festival has been part of Asakusa since the early Showa era. It’s a lovely celebration showcasing Japan’s rich culture and customs during the winter season.

The highlight? Hagoita, traditional paddles adorned with beautiful art.


People bring their Hagoita to the arena for a lively competition. The challenge? Tossing them high and skillfully slamming them down at targets – a magical sight!

This event not only keeps Japan’s timeless games alive but also adds a special touch to December festivities.



Looking for some relaxation during this festive season? Consider Sakura An’s massage shop in Asakusa. After enjoying the enchanting Hagoita Festival, unwind with a traditional Japanese massage at Sakura An🌸
