Ebisu-ko is a festival or private event that is mainly held from October 20th to November 20th. It may be held on or before or after January 10th or January 15th as Ebisu on the 10th. Autumn season word. The origins of Tori No Ichi, which are held at Washi Shrines in various parts of Japan such as Otori Grand Shrine, are different and have nothing to do with it.


Ebisu God (Ebisu, Ebisu, Ebisu, Ebisu), who was said to be an "absent god" who did not go to Izumo in Kannazuki (October of the lunar calendar) Pray for fertility, big catch, or prosperous business. Depending on the region and shrines and temples, it may be held on October 20th of the lunar calendar, twice in autumn and spring (January 20th), or on January 10th or January 15th and before and after the 10th Ebisu. Sometimes I do it. Also known as the Ebisu Festival and Ebe-san. It is held not only at Ebisu Shrine, whose main deity is Ebisu, but also at shrines and temples enshrined as Setsumatsusha. It is one of the lectures, and it has the meaning of a religious association where fishermen and merchants perform rituals in a group, but the Ebisu lecture also has the meaning of rituals in each family. In eastern Japan, the meaning of domestic rituals is strong, and in eastern Japan, the tendency to worship not only as a god of commercial fishing but also as a god of agriculture is more remarkable than in western Japan. Depending on the region, the Ebisu class in January may be called the merchant Ebisu, and the October Ebisu may be called the peasant Ebisu. Commercial workers and commercial groups sometimes offer bargain sales in conjunction with the Ebisu-ko, and in recent years, there are areas where Ebisu-ko is held as an event called this bargain event / commercial festival. On the day of Ebisu-ko, a market will be set up and vegetables such as fish and root vegetables will be sold. In addition, Fukusasa or rakes decorated with many lucky charms will be sold. This lucky charm is given by the shrine and is also called "Kichicho".
