Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine Flea Market – 富岡八幡宮骨董市

Antique Fair at Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine in Fukagawa, Koto-ku is held every month on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays (except Dec. 27 and Jan. 3) from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. with about 150 shops. October fairs will be on 6,13 and 27. Tomioka Hachimangu is the largest Hachiman shrine in Tokyo. It was founded in 1627. Hachiman enshrines the emperor Ojin (died in 310AD) who deified as the God of War. Tomioka Hachimanis festival in mid-August is counted as one of the three great festivals in Tokyo (see August page). The shrine is strongly associated with sumo. During the Edo era, the shrine was the offical venue for sumo, and tournaments were held every spring and winter. The shrine is also proud of its “ichi-no-miya” mikoshi which is the biggest in Kanto and gorgeous – decorated with diamonds. Since the mikoshi is so heavy that it was only carried when it was brought in the shrine. The mikoshi is housed in the building and is displayed to visitors.
