●January 2016 "The Tamagawa Seven Lucky Gods Procession" and the "Armored Samurai Parade"

Why not visit the "Tamagawa Seven Lucky Gods" of this artisan town who are turning 3 years old since their birth? The Tamagawa Seven Lucky Gods are the Seven Gods of Fortune of the town that has become the location of the recently much talked-about "Shitamchi Rocket" (Tsukuda Factory). From January 1 (Friday) to 4 (Monday) participants of the Seven Lucky Gods procession (those who have bought the 1000 yen samurai seal letter) may partake of the "wine of the gods" and "sweet red bean soup". In addition, on January 4 (Monday), Tamagawa Seven Lucky Gods guided tours will also be carried out. Reception is from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and will start anytime once groups of 7-10 participants are formed. Advanced reservations are not necessary as long as you can come within the indicated times. On the day itself you will also be able to view the "street performance".

January 10 (Sunday) and January 31 (Sunday) are the festival dates of the Tamagawa Seven Lucky Gods. Many refreshment booths will be set up. Furthermore, on January 31, the "New Spring Festival" of the Musashi-Nitta Stores Association will also be held, and the first "Armored Samurai Parade" for this year will be held.
