Late Sep 2022
  • This event has passed.

This autumn festival has roots dating back to 1738 and, although temporarily cancelled, has survived the centuries in one form or another. It is colloquially known as the “Chestnut Festival” because the nuts—which are from the Musashino area—are in season and sold in the shrine’s grounds. Other notable features are the 260 paper lanterns with colorful paintings glowing and creating a memorable sight. Although events are held over the weekend, Sunday is the main day. Aim to get there in the early evening so you can sample the chestnuts and enjoy the lanterns as the sunsets—all amidst the sounds of Shinto music.
