Until the Meiji period, many Asakusa living in the bushland surrounded by paddy fields lived in Asakusa.
Several Bunshin wars broke out and the Raccoon in the mountains of Ueno who escaped the fight escaped in all directions,
and some saw the relief with Raccoon Yokocho.
But, there are the Raccoons of Asakusa here, and from the thought that the territory will be destroyed,
a glance started and it became an atmosphere of battle.
There is Asakusa Tanuki's elder 'Tatsugoro Tanuki' appearing in the Asakusa land Reflecting on the mischief so far,
to realize that the mercy of the Kannon and the protection of the Kannon are living quietly,
to keep peace I realized the importance of something useful for people.
A warm feeling was born in the desolated hearts of the raccoons,
and fighting and mischief ceased.
Twelve raccoons with a sense of mission within that sense are totally
triggered for the benefit of the people and accumulate training for the sennin who can have
the power to make people's wishes come true, each from the town descent It was loved and celebrated.
