The annual festival held every September is crowded with many people. This year, the grand festival is held once every two years, and the mikoshi (portable shrine) of the main shrine travels around Kameari Town at the “Shinko-sai” to be held on September 16.
The most exciting event of this festival is the joint carrying of town’s portable shrines. The appearance of lighted-up portable shrines return to the Kameari Katori Shrine one after another is spectacular.
