Kite Market at Oji Inari Shrine

Kite Market at Oji Inari Shrine

Back in the Edo Period, Japan’s massive wooden shrines would often fall victim to lantern fires. As they are lifted by hot air, kites became a symbol for fire prevention, and a charm to keep them away. Since then, the Oji Inari Shrine has held an annual fair known as the Tako-Ichi, or Kite Market. With around 100 stalls selling traditional food, kites and merchandise, the Kite Market at Oji Inari Shrine attracts over 50,000 people across two days in February.

The market is held on the February’s Days of the Horse, falling this year on the 7th and 19th.
