The Sanno Matsuri, one of Tokyo's Three Major Festivals

The Sanno Matsuri is a religious festival held by Hie Shrine in Tokyo. During Japan's Edo Period (1603-1867), a portable shrine used in Shinto festivals, called Mikoshi, was carried into the Edo Castle grounds. This was the origin of a special festival known as Tenka-Matsuri, in which real Shoguns paraded through what is now Tokyo. Spanning 11 days, this festival features over 20 events.

Marunouchi Illumination

Marunouchi’s annual winter scenery event, Marunouchi Illumination 2018, starts this year from November 8th (Thursday). Between the shops along the 1.2 kilometers of Marunouchi Naka-Dori, and the over 200 trees along Otemachi Naka-Dori, over 100 million LED lights in the Marunouchi-original “champagne gold” color light up the area to make a spectacular Christmastime cityscape.
