Sanja Festival

Hello, this is hitomi from Shinjuku Business Garden.

Have you ever been to big festival in Japan?
Do you know Asaku sa?

Sanja Matsuri, one of the three biggest festival in Tokyo is held on 17th to20th of May at Asakusa Shrine!!
I went to the Sanja Matsuri on last Sunday.....

During the matsuri, three Mikoshi (portable shrine?) are carried around the Asakusa area where hundreds of thousands of visitors gather to watch the event.

This is one of the three large mikoshi(sannomiya mikoshi)

This is the Kaminari-mon but big lantern was hold and easier to come through the gate for mikoshi.

I really enjoyed Sanja matsuri and touched the spirit of true-born Tokyoite!
