The last event of December 2018 was a tour of Hagoita-ichi in Asakusa.
Hagoita(羽子板・はごいた) is a wooden raquet to play Hanetsuki(羽根つき). Hanetsuki is a traditional old style Japanese game like badminton of hitting a Hane (shuttlecock). Nowadays, we see traditionally decorated Hagoitas at Hagoitaichi in Asakusa.
There were some fun hagoitas with designs that have popular TV characters of this year on it. Many people came to watch these and were taking photos. ^^
It was a beautiful day and the Nakamise Street was already prepared for New Years.
I hope everybody will have a wonderful New Years!
