Sanja Festival of Asakusa Shrine

(84) Reviews

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.

“ Very Informative Tour ”

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

We were visiting Tokyo for only a few days and therefore wanted a tour guide to show us as many places as possible. Dai was great at doing just that! We would definitely not be able to see so many places in one day if we were to do it just by ourselves. The tour was very flexible and Dai adjusted the itinerary based on our interests. While touring, he shared with us a lot of information about Japa...

Dai was the perfect representative and guide for our first day in Tokyo. He helped us to navigate the subway and made it less intimidating. He was very knowledgeable, explained the water cleansing process at Sensoji Temple which served us we'll throughout our visit in Japan. Our kids requested a mandatory visit to Akihabara which would have been completely overwhelming without Dai who also helped ...

Dai was a great and very knowledgeable guide who knew both his history and his ways around Tokyo very well. The tour was already mapped for us when he arrived at our hotel in the morning and it was later on personalised to our wishes. He was extremely flexible and made our tour amazing just as we hoped it would be and more. On top of all the must-sees, Dai also took us to a Samurai museum, an auth...

Me and my brother have a 11h layover at Narita airport, Tokyo. Dai waits for us at Ueno station on time. We are very impressed with his ability to guide us through the crowded metro system of Tokyo without a moment of hesitation or uncertainty. We visit Tsukiji fish market, Imperial Palace, Asakusa and Akihabara Districts. Dai introduces to us in detail on the culture, history, food and interes...

Dai was a wonderful tour guide! He met us promptly at our hotel in Shibuya and had the day planned out for us already. In a short time, we were able to cover many different areas of Tokyo with the subway. Dai knew his way well around the subway stations and got us everywhere efficiently to make the most of our time. Dai was also very accommodating and flexible. We gave him requests beforehand, but...

“ Most comprehensive Tokyo tour ”

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

We would not have been able to see as many sights in Tokyo on our own. Tokyo is very crowded especially in tourist sites and subways. Dai navigated us through the crowds and the subway maze with ease. Dai organized day so that one day we used all day subway ticket on first day and another day with our JR pass. He even knew which subway car was more efficient to get out to where the exit or tra...

“ A superb guide ”

We presented Dai with a unique problem: a tour planned months ago that would now take place with a typhoon bearing down on Tokyo. Dai was creative. Together, we kept one eye on the weather and the other on the sights...and made it all work. He's a charming, knowledgeable, flexible professional. We had a great day with a terrific guide.

Dai did an amazing job introducing us to Tokyo and planning the day based on a mix of Tokyo highlights and what our kids wanted to do. We have two boys age 21 & 19 and wanted to see anime so Dai weaved in a stop at Akihabara. Dai is extremely knowledgeable of what subway line to take, restaurants to visit and attractions to see in Tokyo. With his pre-planning of the days sights, the day went smo...

“ Great way to orientate to Tokyo and cover a lot of ground ”

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

We had a wonderful day and half wih Dai, who suggested a great itinerary for us but was also flexible to accomodate our interests along the way. We didn’t want to do a group tour and wanted to discover Tokyo ourselves and Dai helped us do that and was terrific in explaining customs, differences and “how to navigate” our way around Japan. Thanks Dai for a professional and fun couple of days.

We were referred Dai through a coworker of mine in Chicago. He was very nice, talkative, and made it so we were able to do many things in one day! He gave a lot of great suggestions, and because it was so personalized, we really enjoyed it. Dai is an excellent tour guide! We are used to using big travel companies such as Gate One travel and Trafalgar, but this was an excellent way to start the vac...
