condition of the first market
The shop which they sell woodworks

"Heisei Nabe Gassen", that fixed as an event of winter in Tendo now. They originally started as an event to enliven "the first market in Tendo".

From now, they held "the first market" on the "Coming-of-Age Day" of January 15, the nearest day to the little New Year. However, because a law about a holiday was changed, they have a market on Sunday that is the nearest to January 15 from 2000. The day of "Heisei Nabe Gassen" as an event to enliven "the first market in Tendo" is also changed with the day of the first market.

At the first market in Tendo, many variety of shops are open, woodworks of cutting boards, vegetables of winter (ex. Chinese cabbage, a Japanese radish) to turn into a pickle and a branch of food (chow mein, vegetable pancakes, etc.). It is a characteristic that they sell daily necessities, the thing which is very close in life.

But, speaking of the first market, it is still "a dumpling tree"(Dangogi). That a shop handling a dumpling tree stands in line in a street of the first market, it looks very brilliant and we become with a light heart.

I arrived at a meeting place before one hour from a event start, this year too, and looked around at many places with a camera.

Preparation of "Pot of Clubs"

In order to get a championship title "Nabe Shogun", they have to supply many bowls as many as possible. It decides victory or defeat whether they handle the number of people because a terrible line makes just after the event started.

Therefore, almost teams prepare many bowls with contents and they service their pot food with soup just after a order.
