Popular annual festival at Nezu Shrine near Yanaka. The shrine’s spacious grounds will be filled with festival stalls and traditional performances are planned on the main stage, including a taiko drumming exhibition from 11am on the Sunday. While the Grand Festival is a great opportunity to enjoy the traditional festival atmosphere, the carrying and transfer of the large portable shrine only occurs once every four years and will not take place this year.
