Sanja Matsuri (Festival)三社祭

Event

The annual festival of Asakusa Shrine, a Shinto shrine with over 700 years of history. Known as the greatest ara festival held today, the festival is conducted over a three day period and attracts around 1.5 million attendees. It is also considered one of the three great Edo festivals. The highlight of the event occurs on the last day when the shrine's own portable shrine is paraded around each neighborhood in the city before returning at night. The sight of this portable shrine arriving home to the red welcoming glow of paper lanterns is truly magical.

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
