[Kin-sanko festival is held every 2 years at “Benten-do” temple in Shinobazu-no-ike]

Since the typical style of Benten god is holding Biwa (one of the Japanese string instruments), the Benten god has been adored as a god of music and the monument of Koto has been established in the Benten-do temple by pioneers of Japanese music instruments.  Tokyo Japanese Music Instruments & Commerce Union has organized a festival to thrive music in Japan.
