For the 44th time the residents of the fashionable Kichijoji neighbourhood get together and get rowdy (in a very organised way) for the Kichijoji Aki Matsuri (autumn festival).

On the first day of the festival, the mikoshi (portable shrines) from the various neighbourhoods of Kichijoji will be jiggled and jostled around the streets, ending up in front of the station on Heiwa Dori.  On Sunday, the focus shifts to Musashino Hachimangu shrine for their main festival.

Entry: Free
Closest station(s): Kichijoji
