Kanda Matsuri
Text An annual festival celebrated on May 15 at the Kanda Shrine in Tokyo. During the Edo period, this festival was celebrated in alternate years with the Hie Shrine festival (see Sannô Matsuri). There was a procession with mikoshi (sacred palanquins) and yamaboko floats, and the spirit of community rivalry motivated the residents of Kanda to put on an extremely showy festival.
