Kanda-matsuri Festival is one of the three largest festivals in Edo, and indeed in all of Japan. The grand six-day celebration attracts the largest crowds especially on two days. In the Shinko-sai parade, mikoshi portable shrines weave from Kanda to Nihombashi, to the Ote-Marunouchi area, and to Akihabara. And in the Mikoshi Miya-iri procession, a hundred floats prepared by the parish towns enter the shrine premises to worship. Both events offer the chance to see the energy of Japanese mikoshi parades.

* This year the mikoshi parade is on Saturday and Sunday, May 13 and 14.
