Held annually centering on August 15th, Fukagawa Matsuri is held by Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine in Koto Ward. It is one of Edo's (Tokyo's) Big Three Festivals along with Kanda Myojin Shrine's Kanda Matsuri and Hie Jinja Shrine's Sanno Matsuri. Fukagawa Matsuri is famous for Japan's largest golden portable shrine while Kanda Matsuri is famous for its large float. Portable shrine bearers shout "Wasshoi, wasshoi!" As they are doused with water for purification. Bystanders throw so much water that the festival is nicknamed, "Water-throwing Festival." A summer tradition retaining the old feel of Edo.
