The Fukuro Matsuri is Ikebukuro's biggest festival and is held on the last weekend in September.
The main event of Fukuro Festival is the oddly named "Let's Carry the Mikoshi for International Exchange Association", which involves foreigners carrying the mikoshi (portable shrines) on their shoulders.
Sakura Hotel guests can participate in the festival by carrying their own mikoshi in the parade. This is a fun chance for guests to learn about Japanese culture and participate in a traditional activity.
