Kichijoji Autumn Festival 2023

10:00am – 7:30pm

On both days of the festival, the mikoshi (portable shrines) from the various neighborhoods of Kichijoji will be jiggled and jostled around the streets.

2022 Schedule

The main Musashino Hachimangu mikoshi will leave at 11:00 from Musashino Hachimangu, visit the shopping streets, and return around 17:00. There will be two separate courses for each day, so see the full map and timings on the official website.

For 2022, the official Musashino Hachimangu shrine main festival will happen separately on Sep 15 to avoid overcrowding.

It will be on a smaller scale this year but there will still be plenty of stalls and fairs to enjoy.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
