Autumn Festival

As we wrote on our blog before, we have many Natsumatsuri (Summer Festival) in Japan, but Autumn is also a season to see lots of Akimatsuri (Autumn Festival) in the towns. Local shrines hold the festivals to thank gods for the harvest, so the significance is almost same as that of  Thanksgiving.

Here are some of the festivals holding Akimatsuri in this weekend. If you have a chance, please stop and have a look at them.

 

*Nezu Shrine   (5 min. walk from Nezu station on Chiyoda Line)   : Sep. 21- 22

*Atago Shrine (5 min. walk from Kamiyacho station on hibiya line) : Sep. 22-24

*Akagi Shrine (1 min. walk from Kagurazaka station on Tozai Line) : Sep 21-22

 

Enjoy long weekend in Tokyo!
