May/5 Kachiya Festival3.3
from 5/5 '20 to 5/5 '20
※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.

Visited at exactly the moment they were conducting a post-Olympic ceremony. Great for my visitor from Spain to see!

Nice quiet shrine for sports, out of the way but great to run too.

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.
