Festivals & Events
Many people from all over Japan visit Kanda Myojin Shrine to make new year's wishes, praying for safety of the household, good relationship (en-musubi), rush of business etc. En-musubi often means ""marriage tie"" but we can wish for any tie and good relationship to develop things in harmony. Daikoku matsuri festival is held in January. A Shinto dancer (kagura-shi) will disguise as Daikoku-sama, the deity of fortune, and celebrate worshipers newly coming of age by shaking lucky mallet above their heads.
