Sanja Matsuri


When: 15/05/15 - 17/05/15: All Day

Where: Asakusa Shrine, 2-3-1 Asakusa

Asakusa is home to one of the biggest and most prestigious shrines in the country and although it’s the setting for all kinds of traditional festivals and events throughout the year none of them compare to the huge celebration that is Sanja Matsuri. Join hundreds of thousands of spectators as they gather around the famous shrine for three days of makoshi (that is, “portable shrine”) action. There are parades taking place around noon each day with three especially large makoshi joining the fray for the Sunday climax.
