Feel the spirit of Edo at this curious festival taking place around the tiny Takarada Ebisu Shrine in Nihonbashi. More than 400 stalls are set up to sell everything from spices to yakisoba, but the main attraction is bettara-zuke, the daikon radish pickles known as a local speciality. The festival also features mikoshi parades, floats manned by kids from the neighbourhood, and a magical atmosphere at night, when the street in front of the shrine is lit up with lanterns. Join the locals and transport yourself back in time in the cool autumn air.
