Ebisu Festival

I went to the Ebisu Festival with my girlfriend. The Ebisu festival is held at the Ebisu-Imamiya Shrine. Ebisu is the god of merchants, fisherman, and sailors and Osaka is a city renowened for its merchants. During this 3 day festival merchants from all over the city flock to donate money, and bang the gong to awaken the hard-of-hearing god in order to ensure a year of good luck in their business endeavors.
