The Kanda Festival, known nation-wide, which has continued since the Edo period and was inspected by the Tokugawa Shogun, is known as one of the three great festivals of Edo. The festival is held once every two years, and a gorgeous procession of mikoshi and hikimono make their way through the Kanda and Nihonbashi areas. Kanda Myojin Shrine was founded in the current Otemachi in 730, and was transferred to its present place to become part of the urakimon garrison of Edo Castle in 1616 (Genna gannen).
