The scheduling is estimated and subject to change

Annual festival celebrating the history of Shinagawa and its role in making Tokyo the city it is today. Shinagawa was the first post along the Tokaido—the main road of the five routes that linked eastern and western Japan—and this festival very much has an Edo theme. The key attraction is the oiran dochu at 4pm on the Saturday, a procession of courtesans in full dress, but there is also taiko drumming and a small fire-walking event at Shinagawa Temple (from 1pm on Sunday). Events generally take place along the main road running east of the railway line from Aomono-Station to Kita-Shinagawa.
