Over 1,000 years ago the military leader Fujiwara no Hidesato came to the shrine to pray for victory in the war when the feudal lord Taira no Masakado began an uprising against the imperial court. Following the suppression of the rebellion, Fujiwara no Hidesato gave a bow and arrow to the shrine in thanks for the gods and named it kachiya (winning arrow). Today this story is remembered through the parade and Kachiya Festival (勝矢祭, Kachiya-sai). Participants in samurai-attire march out of Kameidokatori Shrine at 1pm and return around 3pm. The festival is held around the shrine from 3pm onwards.
