Shiba Daijingu

The Shiba daijingu shrine has a history of over 1000 years. In the old days when people could not travel far distances, a visit to the Shiba daijingu was considered and alternative to visiting the Ise shrine which was located in the current Mie prefecture, over 300 kilometers away from Tokyo.
The Shiba daijingu is famous for the Daradara Festival held each year in September on the temple grounds with the procession of 0-Mikoshi portable shrines as one of its highlights. This festival dates back to the Edo era and The name of the festival expresses the long duration of the festival, which lasts for 11 days, while usual temple festivals only last for about 3 days.
