When: 10/01/15 - 12/01/15: All Day
Where: Kanda Shrine, 2-16-2 Sotokanda
Head down to Kanda Shrine over the weekend to catch an assortment of interesting New Year traditions and festivities. Saturday sees a host of brave, scantily-clad souls brave the winter cold and submerge their bodies in icy water in a cleansing ritual, and traditionally garbed master-chefs show off some serious knife skills at Sunday’s knife ritual. Meanwhile, good luck for the year can be attained at Monday’s prayer festival.
