Sanja Festival is one of the wildest and largest Shinto Festivals in Tokyo.
Sanja(-sama) are two brothers who found Kannon, a small statue of deity of mercy, at the Sumida River and their master.
They are now enshrined at Asakusa Shrine.
The festival features a parade of three exquisite portable shrines carried on the shoulders of men and women dressed in festive happi-coats.
The festival is held on the third Friday, Saturday and Sunday in May every year.
