Okunitama Shrine
09:00–17:00・Jul 18, 2022–Jul 20, 2022・Okunitama Shrine 3-1 Miyamachi, Fuchu

The popular Plum Festival is held on July 20 every year and will feature 120 street vendors and the Edo no Sato Kagura (Edo Folk Dance), in the evening. Visitors can receive Japanese fans with crow designs from the shrine. The crows signify bountiful harvest and the banishment of evil, so it is believed that if people use the fans, then crop pests will be exterminated and the sick will be healed. Also, if they use them as decoration on their front doors, then it is thought that evil will not enter their homes.  This festival offers the chance to purchase sweet plums while enjoying the atmosphere of a fun summer festival.

While the event will last from 9am to 5pm on July 18 and July 19, it will start at 6am and end at 7pm on July 20.
