"Little Edo (Koedo)" Sawara's children, Daikoku and lion dance
Last weekend, I went to "Little Edo (Koedo)", Sawara (Chiba Prefecture) with my family. When we were eating at a restaurant around noon, (a lucky charm for a New Year,) Daikoku-sama, a lion dance, and children who handed out paper cranes, came in to celebrate. "Have you got paper cranes yet?" she said, and when the lion dance came around, "He'd like to (playfully) bite at your heads!"
Thanks to all of them, it's been a really auspicious beginning of the year.
