Tori no Ichi Festival is a fair held at Ohtori Shrine twice or thrice on the days of Tori or rooster in November since the Edo Period.
People come to the shrine to wish good luck, happiness, and business prosperity. This fair is famous for the brightly decorated bamboo rakes called Kumade, traditionally used to sweep the fallen leaves or grains that are sold there.
