"Popular Kanda Festival"

Before the decision by Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu in the 17th century to move Kanda Myojin to its present location, the original shrine in Otemachi, where the body of the popular 10th century rebel leader Taira no Masakado rests, dates back to 730 A.D. The shrine, itself is an aesthetic disappointment, but is the starting point of the well-loved Kanda Festival held in mid-May every two years.
