One of the largest drum festivals in Japan. A number of drum player groups gather at Narita Shinshoji Temple and show their powerful drumming performance.
This street festival is held at Komatsubashi Dori Street in the northern district of Asakusa, situated at the back of Sensoji Temple.
Yabusame is the art of shooting arrows on horseback, performed as a traditional ceremony that derives from horse riding exercises for Samurai Warriors.
