Another regular joy and ritual event (saiji 祭事)were the many

ennichi 縁日 monthly festival and prayer days
at most temples and shrines.

They often were combined with a fair selling specialities of the area and gave the Edokko 江戸っ子 "children of Edo" a chance for an outing.

For example two days, during the New Year and O-Bon :
. Sainichi 斎日, さいにち Fasting day, sixteenth day .
on the day of Enma  閻魔王 King of Hell
