Tsukiji-jishi Matsuri street festival, an annual festival in which locals will march through the streets of Tokyo’s Tsukiji district carrying floats of lion heads, will be held from June 12 through June 14 at Namiyoke-Inari Shrine.

This year marks the 350th anniversary of the reclamation of the area and the enshrining of the god to pray for safe completion of the reclamation project.
