In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

The annual festival of Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine is also known as the Fukagawa Hachiman Festival, and is held around August 15. It is considered one of the three great festivals of Edo (as Tokyo was once called).

Throughout the event, people splash purifying water on mikoshi (portable shrines), lending the event its nickname: the "water-splashing festival." Shrine-bearers and spectators alike create a special, playful energy at this festival.

This year's procession will feature the "Ninomiya" mikoshi.
