Better known as the Penis Festival, this annual highlight at Kawasaki's Wakamiya Hachimangu falls on the first Sunday in April and celebrates fertility in a big way. You'll agree when you see the giant
mikoshi
(portable shrine) containing a variety of phalluses being paraded through the streets. Crowds will start forming as early as 9am at Kanayama Shrine, but the parade will commence at noon. Don’t miss the Elizabeth Mikoshi, a less traditional float donated by the eponymous drag queen club Elizabeth Kaikan, with a huge pink penis that certainly stands out in the crowd. Visitors can also enjoy (in)appropriately shaped candy, vegetables, and decorations, all while helping to raise money for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.
