Since Kumades are sold only at the Torinoichi Fair, held in November every year. The fair is generally very crowded with people coming to buy a Kumade and to enjoy the spirited atmosphere which has splendid displays of hundreds of beautiful Kumades.
Torinoichi is held 2 or 3 times in November, but the date varies each year, so you need to check every year. Torino Ichi is held at several Shrines and Temples in Tokyo. If you are planning to go to Tokyo during this time of period, why not drop by the Torino Ichi Fair to get lucky in the incoming new year.
