Japan will be having an upcoming festival being held in Shinjuku, and it’s celebrating a “god” that many people might not know about. This new festival is called the “Yato Festival” or “Yato Matsuri“, and it will be celebrating Noragami’s war god/house worker/ cleaner/ janitor, Yato.


According to the Noragami anime’s official website, the Yato Festival will be a Noragami-themed event, which will be held in Shinjuku’s Geidankyo Building. A dance event and a mystery game have been confirmed as part of the event, as well as a special advanced screening of Noragami Aragoto, which is the anime’s second season. The festival even has its own PV!

Limited edition Noragami merchandise will also be offered during the Yato Festival, which will be held from 3 – 4 October 2015. Meanwhile, Noragami Aragoto, which will follow the manga’s Bishamon arc, will premiere later in the month.
