Sanja Festival of Asakusa Shrine

by Dai

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.

If you want to see or join this amazing festival, please check my tour - Asakusa & Ueno Awesome Tour -, or just simply contact me.

Super friendly guide. We booked 2 days Hakone and Tokyo with Dai. He met us in advance at our hotel to book our train the next day to Hakone. Even helped us booking our train to Kyoto which is not part of his tour. Dai is easy to talk to and very organized in our tour. Restaurants he suggested are also very good. He even brought us towels to use for our foot bath in Hakone. He is simply a thoughtf...

Dai was an awesome tour guide. He took us around the city, was extremely knowledgeable of what routes to take, restaurants to visit, and even has a pretty good mastery of Spanish. He’s visited over 150 countries as well, so it was also extremely fun to talk with him about his experiences. We had a great day in Tokyo thanks to Dai. He’s the best!

We saw temples, shines, busy shopping streets and Tokyo Electric town. We took train to Hakone area and enjoyed the lake, hot springs, views and open area musium. Dai introduced us to local food and expan...

“ Day Tour of Tokyo ”

Excellent
1 week ago Traveler: Nicole -   Tour Guide: Dai

We spent a FULL day with Dai exploring eastern Tokyo - Tsujikii, Asakusa, Ueno, Akihabara and Imperial Palace. Dai met us at our hotel and dropped us back 8 hours later - exhausted but somewhat enlightened after our first day in Japan. Dai was kind enough to introduce some newbies to Japan to the Tokyo Metro, ATMs, and enough basic language and etiquette to get us of to a great start for the rest ...

Dai is very personable with excellent English skills. His organization of our trip fromTokyo to Hakone was perfect. We were there during Golden Week but the way he organized our itinerary we avoided the bad crowds. Our tour was fro 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM (including all the transportation) so Dai was very generous with his time and kept us on schedule. Also the lunch spot he picked was wonderful. ...

“ Awesome Tokyo Day Trip ”

Excellent
1 month ago Traveler: Kelli -   Tour Guide: Dai

Dia was a wonderful tour guide. He made sure to ask us our interests and planned our stops with them in mind. We used the subway system all day because it stopped closer to all of our locations. Dai had no trouble navigating and kept us in the loop the whole time. He had great recommendations for shopping and food. We came late during cherry blossom season and he even asked if we could change...
