Sanja Matsuri 2019

The Sanja Matsuri or the Sanja Festival is an annual celebration that takes place in the city of Tokyo over the third full weekend in May. It is a coveted religious fiesta and is one of the three great Shinto festivals in Tokyo, along with the Kanda Matsuri and Sanno Matsuri. Another implication that is associated with it is the tribute to the three founders of the Sensoji Temple- Hinokuma Hamanari, Hinokuma Takenari and Hajino Nakatomo.

The Sanja Matsuri appears to have many forms that date back as early as the 7th century, as well as several names such as "Kannon Matsuri" and "Asakusa Matsuri". The festivities begins with the Daigyoretsu Parade- a large procession of priests, city officials, geisha, musicians and dancers wearing Edo Period costumes. A Shinto ceremony is held immediately after the parade, followed by a traditional dance to pray for an abundant harvest and prosperity. Over two million people visit this event every year to be a part of the spectacle.
