The popular Sengen Shrine is also called “O-Fuji-san”. On the last Saturday and Sunday in May and June, the “O-Fuji-san no Ueki-Ichi” (Potted Plant Fair) is held here. This event is a summer tradition in Asakusa. Many shops selling plants and flowers set up in the area behind Senso-ji Temple near Sengen Shrine. It is said that plants bought at the fair will do especially well, because they are transplanted just at the beginning of the rainy season.
