The Sanja Festival (Sanja Matsuri) is one of the largest annual festival of mikoshi (portable shrines) held in Asakusa, Tokyo. Nearly two million people visit Asakusa over the three days of the festival.
The Sanja Matsuri features about one hundred portable shrines in which Shinto deities are symbolically placed into and paraded about the streets to bring good fortune to the local businesses and residents. On the Sunday, the final day of the festival, three especially large-sized portable shrines join the parade. These huge portable shrines depart from Asakusa Shrine early in the morning at 6 o'clock, and return around 8 o'clock at night.
