Setagaya Boroichi, the winter feature in Tokyo, has been held for about 440 years

It is the origin of “Setagaya Boroichi” that began to be held at year end as an agricultural tool market for farmers in 1578. After that the farmers’ working clothes and the used one for “Waraji” (straw sandals) became cheaply sold, so it came to be called “Boroichi”.
“Setagaya Boroichi” has been continued for about 440 years until now, and it is the winter feature that was designated as one of Tokyo’s intangible folk cultural assets.
