Fans of the comic and animated series “Lucky Star (らき☆すた)” took part in a festival Sunday in Kuki, Saitama Prefecture, which is home to the Washinomiya Shrine(鷲宮神社), upon which a setting integral to the story of the series is based.

Washinomiya Shrine

Lucky Star is a Japanese four-panel comic strip manga by Kagami Yoshimizu. It’s story mainly portrays the lives of four girls attending a high school.

About 140 fans, some in costume, took turns carrying a portable shrine with Lucky Star characters painted on it as part of the shrine’s annual Haji Festival.

The number of visitors to the shrine began increasing after the Lucky Star comic series about an anime-loving high school girl was made into an animated TV series in 2007.

The Lucky Star portable shrine has been used in the festival since 2008.
