Autumn matsuri held at Setagaya Hachimangu, one of the larger shrines in Setagaya Ward. Notable for the dohyo (sumo ring) set up in the grounds of the shrine and the honosumo (奉納相撲) event. These were contests during the Edo period that took place at three shrines (the other two being Hikawa Shrine in Shibuya and Oi Kashima Shrine in Shinagawa). For the autumn festival, members of the Tokyo University of Agriculture sumo wrestling club come to show their prowess in the ring. The sumo takes place from 2pm on the Saturday, while from midday on the Sunday you can see the mikoshi being carried. There will be a good number of stalls selling food and drink around the shrine.
