Visit to the Kano Shihan's grave

Bozen-sai, which means paying a visit to the grave of Kano Shihan, the founder of the Kodokan, was held on May 2nd.


The grave is located in Yahashira-reien cemetery, in Matsudo City in Chiba Prefecture, and is characterized by a rare type of Shinto-style gravestone.

We conduct Bozen-sai at this time every year to commemorate the anniversary of Kano Shihan's death that was on May 4th, 1938.
