Kanda Myōjin (Kanda Shrine)

Along with the Gion Matsuri in Kyoto and the Tenjin Matsuri in Osaka, the Kanda Matsuri boasts nationwide recognition as one of Japan's three major festivals. It was held yearly until late in the 17th century, but currently the symbolic events are held every other year, alternately with the Sanno Matsuri. This year the festival will be held in full scale, a once in a two-year opportunity to get the full experience of various rituals and dynamic activities.
