Kameari Katori Shrine Annual Festival
An annual Festival held at Kameari Katori Shrine that appeared in “Kochikame”
Kameari Katori Shrine is a venerable shrine celebrated the 740 anniversary in 2016.
This shrine appeared frequently in the comic ‘Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Koen Mae Hashutsujo’ which had been serialized for 40 years, and it is a familiar place for “Kochikame” fans.
The annual festival held every September is crowded with many people. This year, the grand festival is held once every two years, and the mikoshi (portable shrine) of the main shrine travels around Kameari Town at the “Shinko-sai” to be held on September 16.
The most exciting event of this festival is the joint carrying of town’s portable shrines. The appearance of lighted-up portable shrines return to the Kameari Katori Shrine one after another is spectacular.
