Sanja Matsuri Festival in Asakusa, Tokio 2019

Sanja Matsuri, the Three Shrine Festival, is recognised as one of the wildest and largest religious festivals in Japan. The festival is held in honor of Hinokuma Hamanari, Hinokuma Takenari, and Hajino Nakatomo, the three men, who established and founded the Senjo-Ji Buddhism.

Sanja Matsuri is a religious celebration, held on the third weekend of  May. Its prominent parades revolve around the three giant portable shrines, called Mikoshi. Over the course of three days, the festival attracts over 1 million locals and tourists every year with traditional music and dancing.
