Which festivals held in Tokyo do you recommend?

Shinagawa-jinja Shrine Grand Festival

There are various festivals held in different areas of Shinagawa City throughout the year. When there is a festival, there are rows of vendors selling delicious local foods. There is also an omikoshi (portable shrine) procession, which is something you do not get to see everyday.

The most spectacular scene is mikoshi being carried out of the shrine and back again. The sight of large mikoshi being carried down very steep stairs and then back up at dusk after making its way through the town is awesome.
