【English/日本語】I went to the rooster market in Hachioji with some of my students! There is an Otori Shrine about a 5-minute walk from Hachioji Station. I was impressed by the lucky and gorgeous decorations. Moreover, the sight of shopkeepers calling out good luck to customers who buy them was just like Japanese culture, and the students were very excited. On the way home, we bought a specialty of the rooster market, kirisansho (rice cakes covered with a spice called sansho). It was very delicious. There are two more rooster fairs to come. We hope you will visit the rooster market as well.
学生たちと一緒に八王子の酉の市に行きました!八王子駅から歩いて5分くらいに大鳥神社があります。縁起の良い豪華な飾りに感動。さらに、それを買うお客さんに対してお店の人が縁起の良い掛け声をかける姿は日本文化そのもので、学生たちも興奮していました。帰りに酉の市の名物の切山椒(山椒というスパイスがまぶしてある餅)を買いました。とてもおいしかったです。酉の市はあと2回あります。みなさんもぜひ訪れてみてください。
