Kanda Myojin Shrine's Kanda-matsuri Festival is considered one of the three great festivals of Edo (as Tokyo was once called). Its roots can be traced back to the 8th century. The Honmatsuri, or main festival, is held every other year in odd-numbered years. A scaled-down version is held in even-numbered years. The Honmatsuri features impressive processions of portable shrines through the streets of central Tokyo.
