The Torigoe Matsuri in June is a big event if only for the main feature: the procession of Torigoe Shrine’s omikoshi (portable shrine) weighing in at 4 tons—the biggest in Tokyo. Like the Sanja, this matsuri also involves smaller shrines from the neighborhood associations, but what everybody wants to see (and if possible, carry—carrying the omikoshi is good luck) is the huge omikoshi. Crowds become so thick that usually the riot police needs to be summoned.
