Takarada Ebisu Shrine
Takarada Ebisu Shrine is located in Nihonbashi Honcho, Chuo-ku, Tokyo. It is a shrine dedicated to Ebisu (one of Nihonbashi's "Shichifukujin" -- seven lucky Japanese gods) that was relocated to this place during the Edo period. This area has historically prospered through its role in gold-silver exchange, land-based infrastructure, and freight transportation. The merchants and business-owners in the area have long worshipped the shrine deity, Ebisu, for his correlation to bringing business prosperity and success. Every year, in preparation for the shrine festival on the October 20th, a public market was held on the 19th. Together, they formed an annual tradition of wishing to the gods for prosperity and success. Today, this tradition has transformed into the bustling "Bettara-ichi Market" -- a two-day long public market between October 19th and 20th.
