New Year's street food in Tokyo?

huaqiao | Oct 27, 2010 10:15 AM

I'll be visiting Tokyo from around Dec. 27th through January 2nd. I realize it's not the best time since lots of restaurants will be closed New Year's, but I didn't have much flexibility on the dates.

I've been to Tokyo several times, but usually in the summer or early fall. I thought it would be fun to go in the winter and get to experience hatsumode. From some pictures I've seen, it seems that around some shrines there are lots of food stands set up. Are there any specific shrines I should target with the most variety of food stands?

Any other suggestions for unique or interesting things to try during that period also much appreciated!
