The Gion Festival (Gion Matsuri) takes place annually in Kyoto
and is one of the most famous festivals in Japan. It goes for the entire month of July and is crowned by a parade, the Yamaboko Junko (山鉾巡行) on July 17.
Fortunately my house is vacant on July 17. In addition my house is 5 min walk distance from Kawaramachi-Oike intersection, where tsuji-mawashi is made. The scene of tsuji-mawashi (turning a float) around a narrow corner is spectacular.
Gion Matsuri Festival Event Calendar 14-16, July Yoiyama (eve of the grand parade): On the three nights before the grand parade, the festive atmosphere reaches its peak. The streets are crowded with people, many in traditional dress, Gion bayashi music fills the air, and many stalls are set up along the main streets.
Please take care of your children not to get lost in the crowd. 14-16 Byobu Matsuri (folding screen display): Especially on Shinmachi and Muromachi, families open the front parts of their homes and shops, allowing the public a first-hand look at their valuable folding screens and other treasures. 16 Kencha Matsuri (tea ceremony festival): From 9:00 at Yasaka Shrine, formal tea ceremony will be performed by the Omote Senke School to pray for the development of tea ceremony.
