The precinct was crowded with worshipers because a festival called 'TORINOICHI' was held on that day. Many stalls stood side by side and were doing business. They were selling wooden rakes. What they sold was not used for collecting the fallen leaves. It is displayed in the house or the shop. The wooden rake is believed that it scramble the lucky in Japan. So it is a good-luck amulet.
When I walked around, I found a father and his son standing in front of a stall. The father took a rake in his hand to have a good look. Their expressions were serious.
