About

The festival is held every year from 30th June to 2nd July at Aizendo, which is a separate temple of Shitennoji-temple.
It is one of Osaka’s three major summer festivals lined up with Tenjin Festival and Sumiyoshi Festival, but it has been forced to reduce the scale, such as the prohibition of the opening of stalls and the discontinuation of the palanquin march due to a nuisance by some visitors. (as of 2018 )

和宗総本山四天王寺の別院である愛染堂で毎年6月30日から7月2日に催される祭り。天神祭、住吉祭に並ぶ大阪三大夏祭りの一つであるが、一部の客による迷惑行為等により、露店の出店禁止や籠の行列の中止等、規模縮小を余儀なくされている(2018年現在)。
