The unique feature of the Setagaya Hachimangū Shrine Fall Festival is the ritual sumo that takes place on a dohyo in front of the shrine.
The festival usually takes place over three days, but for 2022 it has been shortened to just one day with the usual mikoshi processions, entertainment, and food stalls canceled.
The ritual sumo — known as hōnōsumo — is open to the public and is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
