Many Japanese festivals are traditional and some have their roots in Chinese festivals, but some have undergone some changes throughout the years, as they mix with local customs. There are countless local “matsuri,” or festivals that are celebrated, because almost every shrine celebrates one on their own. Although an important element of Japanese festivals are processions, under which the local shrines are carried out through the town, other festivals celebrated by Japan are non-religious, like anime festivals. Famous matsuri festivals include the Takayama Aoi, Gion, Tenjin, and Sanja Matsuri, and the anime festivals include the AnimeJapan, Comiket, and Jump Festa
