Sanja Matsuri Festival 2012
The Sanja Matsuri festival will be held this weekend from Friday May 18 to Sunday May 20. It is one of Tokyo’s biggest festivals with around 1,000 people participating in a parade down Nakamis-dori Street to Asakusa Shrine. The parade will go around 1-2 pm.
On the 19th at noon around 100 mikoshi or Japanese style floats will be paraded around Asakusa.
The festival is lively and a great way to experience Japanese culture first hand.
