Over the first three days of the new year, an estimated 300,000 visitors are coming to the Washinomiya Shrine, the Tokyo area’s oldest shrine and a real-life backdrop for the Lucky Star anime series. Otaku have been flocking to this shrine since the 2007 anime featured Kagami and Tsukasa Hiiragi — twin sister characters who supposedly work at the shrine as miko (shrine maidens). This year’s attendance estimate is 130,000 higher than the attendance at last year’s festivities.
