This is not only one of Japan's, and the Edo period's, three biggest festivals, but is considered a true representative of Japan. It's filled with spectacles like the Shitamachi Procession of extravagant Three Royal Carriages, portable shrines, and shrine parishioners, or the Tsuke Matsuri, with impressive parades of massive Ogre Head and Catfish floats. Kanda Matsuri's biggest sight comes at the end, when shrine parishioners carry 200 portable shrines of all sizes into the Kanda Myoujin shrine grounds and the air fills with excitement.

Tokyo Main Areas
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.
