From today until Sunday (21 May 2017) – like every year in May – the great “Sanja Festival“ (三社祭 / さんじゃまつり) is being held in Tōkyō’s Asakusa district (浅草 / あさくさ). Also this year about two million visitors are being expected, making the shrine festival not only to one of the most colourful and lively ones in Tōkyō, but also to one of the biggest.

Anyone who is in Tōkyō during these days and does not visit the festival, deprives him-/herself of an unique experience.
