※Due to the coronavirus concerns, the Samurai Procession of Kachiya Festival has been canceled in 2020. Only the ceremony will be held.


Every 5th of May, Kachiya Festival celebrates a victory granted by the deities at Kameido Katori Shrine, in Tokyo.
The festival features the 2km walking Samurai Procession from Kamede Shrine to Kameido Katori Shrine, displaying real warrior armors, instruments and weapons. The procession would be 500 meter long, and many colorful flags of the festival are up along the street. These make the atmosphere of the festival more gorgeous.
There also be green tea ceremony, carp-release, and Japanese flute performances at Kameido Tenjin Shrine which is 10 mins away from Kameido Katori Shrine.

A beautiful and quiet shrine, not over crowded either. Easy to access using the trains.

Good place to visit. If you are lucky you can see the path of the samurai.

A beautiful shrine especially here in fall when we're visiting. We can see from pictures that it's looking amazing in summer with its hanging flowers.

亀戸天神社の近く。
こじんまりしていますが、なかなかどうして風格あります。
ご承知の通り勝負の勝ち神様です。
あの池江璃花子選手もお詣りに来たとか。。
明治通りに面した鳥居と亀戸天神社通りから香取神社参道を通った先にも鳥居が有ります。
勝ち石という大きな石が祀られてます。
触って運を是非❗
参道の左手には、知る人ぞ知るV6の坂本くんのご実家の果物やさんが有ります。
宮司さんがいらっしゃるのは大体16時頃迄かと
(未確認なので確かめて下さいね)
スポーツの神様、是非詣でて見てください。
総武線亀戸駅から徒歩大体10分位です。
駅前商店街を明治通り方面に向かって行くので、わかりやすいと思いますよ。
