Bettara Festival at Nihonbashi!!

Hi there!

Come any enjoy the Bettara Festival! It will be held just 1-2 blocks away from B-site Nihonbashi Ningyocho from October 19th -20th (around Takarada Ebisu Shrine).

The origin of this festival is as follows:

In October at shrines in the area, the festival in honor of Ebisu is held to pray for prosperity in business. The day before the festival, a market selling of pickled Japanese Radishes ("Bettara pickles"-"Sticky-sticky" pickles) gained popularity during the Edo period and became to be "Bettara Market" since.

There will be more than 300 food stands with many variety of traditional Japanese dishes. Come on out and feel Japan!
