The Sanja Matsuri is one of the biggest cultural events in Tokyo.  It is huge and goes for 3 days and attended by literally millions of people who come to see the 3 large mikoshi paraded through the streets.

It is an amazing event to attend, with all the crowds on the streets, the bands, the food supporting hundreds of years of history.
