I went to the Sanja Festival.

Sanja festival is an annual festival held in May at Asakusa Shrine in Asakusa.

Currently, it is held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the third week of May.

The name was given to the Sanja Daigongensha or Sanja Myojinsha, the former name of Asakusa Shrine.

Because it enshrines the three guys which connect the foundation of Asakusa shrine.

Covid-19 cancel and resume

The Sanja festival was canceled due to Corona in 2020 and 2021.

This year, it was resumed, though on a smaller scale.

Today, three portable shrines paraded through the streets of Asakusa.

They were not carried by everyone as usual, but were moved on carts.

The various costumes in the procession were all traditional, and it was fun just to watch them.
