Many shopping street is crowded lively at winter solstice.

The Demachi-yanagi shopping street located in the center of Kyoto is known as an old shopping street in Kyoto.
This shopping street was called "Masugata (means "Shape like a Measure Cup") shopping street" in old times.

It's necessary for the "FUKUBIKI lottery" end of the year.
When people shop there, the lot assistance ticket can be gotten.
And when people collect 10 tickets, it's possible to rotate "lottery wheel" once.
This shopping street provide for various prizes. Some people already hit the lot.

We usually call it "GARA-GARA" (this is named for the rattling sound when rotating.), but is there that kind of lottery machene in other countries?

冬至の頃は、どの商店街でも歳末の活気で賑わいます。 京都の中心にあるこの出町柳商店街は、京都でも古くからある商店街のひとつで、古くは「枡形商店街」とも言われていました。歩道の布石の枡形の意匠が施されているところからも分かります。

この時期に欠かせないのが「お楽しみ抽選会」。各店舗で買い物すると一定金額毎に抽選補助券が貰え、何枚か溜まると1回抽選できる“アレ”です。商品は各商店街で異なりますが、ここは非常に多彩な商品が揃えられているのが、ムービーから分かります。既に特賞も幾つか当たっていたようですよ。

この運命の一瞬を決めるのが、このくじ引きの道具。ボクは昔から「ガラガラ」って呼んでいましたが、世界では何と呼ぶんでしょうか?...というか、そもそも外国に、この方式のくじはあるのでしょうか?どなたか、教えて下さい(笑)。
