Kawagoe Hachimangu SHrine Children's sumo

Hachimangu is one of many shrines in Kawagoe that is revered for its influence in marriage. Especially because of the divine gingko tree which in fact is two gingko trees that were planted separately and grew into one another. Moreover the shrine is “ichinomiya”, literally the first shrine, in Kawagoe.

The children’s sumo tournament is one of many popular annual events. Even if you haven’t entered your child in the tournament you can pop by to spectate this rare occasion.
