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.
