Mid Jan 2023
We are unable to confirm details for this event. The scheduling is estimated and subject to change.

The association of Kanda Myojin with wealth and good fortune (it is after all home to two of the Seven Gods of Fortune) mean many visit the shrine for the first prayers of the year (hatsumode). Daikoku Matsuri, held in mid-January each year, is the first festival at the famous shrine. The highlight is on Sunday at 3pm when a Shinto dancer, disguised as a Daikokuten (one of the of the Seven Gods of Fortune along with Ebisu), shakes a large mallet above the heads of those who have just come of age to bring them prosperity.
