This festival—centered around Torigoe Shrine in Asakusabashi—has a history dating back to the Heian era (794-1185 CE), but today is famous for the portable shrine, sengan-mikoshi (千貫神輿), which weighs in at almost 4 tons as is carried around the streets in the evening.
- Saturday: Floats and smaller mikoshi carried by children can be seen in the morning from 10am, while between 4pm and 8pm other portable shrines are carried around the shrine.
- Sunday: The sengan-mikoshi leaves Torigoe Shrine at 6:30pm and returns, after travelling around the nearby districts, at around 9pm. There are also smaller portable shrines and floats that form part of the procession.
Stands (250+) selling the usual festival fare line the streets on both days.
