Gion Matsuri

Gion Matsuri Day One Report:

A very hot evening with lots of summer yukata lining the streets is the start of one of Kyoto’s biggest festivals or matsuri. It’s a three day event with the grand finally parade on Sunday.

Here are some Images of to day's events.

The street was cut off of all traffic and with good reason. It was very crowded. They say that tomorrow it will be so much more crowded. It is going to be like the subway in rush hour in Tokyo. lol

CUTE!!! I really want to do that!! It looks like fun!

Said to be the top of Japanese fashion. hehe wow. I'm glad to have gotten that shot.

We also got to see lots of really cool performs by musicians. There is a college just for flower arranging! We got to see a musical performs and the flower arrangements. What an exciting day can’t wait for tomorrow!

It is lots of fun! It is a very popular thing to fo at Japanese festavels.

This is a picture of Kyo and Ki. They are the fishes that I got at the goldfish scooping booth. ^^ Kyo is a big fish! It was so much fun. I got to carry them aroud for about an hour before I returned them, so they would not die.
