The Hie Shrine is a Shinto shrine in Nagatacho, in the Chiyoda district (Tokyo). Its Sanno Matsuri, which takes place on June 15, is one of the three great Japanese festivals of Edo, the forerunner of Tokyo. The procession consisted of the Edo period 45 floats, was accompanied by singers and dancers and was considered to be one of the best festivals in Tokyo. Nowadays the festival takes place on a smaller scale, but is definitely worth seeing.
