Kanda Matsuri Tokyo

The Kanda Matsuri is one of the greatest festivals in Tokyo and one of the best festivals that represents Edo. It only happens every other odd year (for example 2015, 2017). The Kanda Matsuri is the festival of the Kanda Myojin Shrine which honours three deities: Daikokuten(one of the Seven Lucky Gods of good fortune), Ebisu(god of fishermen and luck), and Taira no Masakado- a feudal lord of the 10th century who was worshipped and deified. The portable shrines are paraded through the streets to bring good fortune and blessing to local residents. It is followed by hundreds of musicians, dancers and floats.
