This festival is held at many Shrines in Kansai area particularly. Imamiya Ebisu (今宮戎) is the biggest Toka Ebisu festival among all of these.
To be honest, for us Osaka people say that Toka Ebisu (十日戎) is something different atmosphere and vibe from other big festival at shrine.
The different point is that people pray for “Business Success” at Toka Ebisu festival !!
Ebisu which is called “Ebessan” in Osaka dialect is the patron deity of business as well as of fisheries.
You might see a lot of business-men here and they are going to pray for success their own business at night! (because they are working day-time so they come here at night after job)
Let’s pray for your business success at Toka Ebisu!
