  • This event has passed.

Well-known festival that sees mikoshi and floats move around the streets of Akasaka. During the Edo period is was said to be one of the biggest festivals in the city after the Kanda Matsuri at Kanda Myojin and Sanno Matsuri at Hie Shrine, and despite one portable shrine being transferred and the other lost during the air raids of the war, Akasaka Hikawa Festival still remains a big draw. You can see the mikoshi on all three days of the festival but the main parade with the “dashi” floats is held on the Sunday from midday. A bon odori will also take place in the grounds of the shrine at the weekend between 6:30pm and 9pm.
