Sanno Matsuri Shinto Festival 2019
Jun 7, 2019 at 7:30 am - Jun 16, 2019 at 4:45 pmFree
Following on from the Kanda Matsuri in May, the Sanno Matsuri is one of the three largest Shinto festivals in Tokyo. Although it takes place over an 11 day period in June, the main highlight and most important element is the parade of mikoshi (portable shrines) through central Tokyo on June 8. Accompanied by musicians, dancers and priests- many wearing traditional costume- the mikoshi are carried from the Hie Shrine in Chiyoda at 7:30 a.m. and return at the end of the procession at 4:45 p.m.
