This is the smaller Taiko-bashi (Sori-bashi) located in front of the Romon (Sakura Gate) on the right. The Wisteria Festival of Kameido Tenjin Shrine held from mid-April to mid-May every year is a harbinger of summer. There are many other events held at the shrine. The parents of young children release carp into Shinji Pond during the Shichi-Go-San Festival on November 15 to pray for the healthy growth of their children. Masaoka shiki wrote the haiku poem: "Sori-bashi, the wisteria are purple and carp red".
