The main festival for the Asakusa Shrine, said to be one of the "Three Festivals of Edo" along with the Sanno Matsuri at the Hie Shrine and Kanda Matsuri at the Kanda Shrine.
With dapper men (and women) in "hanten" half-coats carrying shrine-like mikoshis through the city streets, this has become an activity, keeping the "shitamachi" tradition alive.
