"Gion Festival, July 17" Gion Matsuri Tip by j-san

Gion Matsuri, Kyoto: 4 reviews and 8 photos


Ancient floats make their way down Shijo street to the accompaniment of flutes, gongs and chants. The buzz of the crowd taking over the streets and enduring the opressive heat and humidity... No, it really is great!

Address: Shijo street
