Bettara Market is held around Takarada Ebisu Shrine in Nihonbashi.

The history of the fair goes back to the middle of the Edo period when merchants started to sell vegetables, fish and other supplies on October in front of the shrine gate. Bettara is Japanese sweet and salty daikon radish pickles, which are known for the specialty of the region. During the fair, the area is filled with 500 street stalls until the late evening. And locals carry a portable shrine around the town.
