祇園祭山鉾巡行 Gion Festival Yamabokojunko





About Gion Festival Yamabokojunko


The biggest event in the summer in Kyoto is the Gion festival. The Gion festival continues with Yoiyoiyama, Yoiyama and Yamabokojunko, and at the Yamahoko circumambulation of July 17 (the previous festival) and July 24 (the after festival) each year, the Yama and the Hoko that were prepared in each town parade the center of Kyoto. In the Yama and the Hoko of the Gion Festival in Kyoto, the things with high value is used for Gion festival to be called “Moving Museum”. The Gion festival is one of the three great festivals of Kyoto, Japan three great festival, Japan three great Hikiyama festival, and is a very famous festival nationally.

I think that the place where the work of the turnabout called “Tsuji turning” is seen is the intersection of Shijo Kawaramachi. However, the author was able to take pictures at this time from the Kawaramachi Oike intersection, and it was possible to see “Tsuji turning”. When you visit the site, you had better prepare a strong heat stroke measures such as a folding fan, a round paper fan, hat, hydration, and sunscreen. There are also paid seats in various places.

Gion Festival was called “Gion Goryo KAI” until the Meiji period in the festival of Yasaka Shrine in Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto City. The origins of the Gion festival are said to have “the Imperial Court” the first Holy Spirit meeting in Shinsen-en in 863 (Jogan 5 years) to pray for good health due to the epidemic of the plague in Kyoto.
