Japan Gion Matsuri Festival Kyoto, Japan
Join the Monday Madness Unlimited Sushi and Momo
Gion Matsuri or Gion Festival is a festival that takes place annually in the month of July in Kyoto, Japan
To confirm your attendance please send a message to:
Traditional dances are performed at Yasaka Shrine, there are theatrical performances at Shimogamo Shrine and Kamigamo Shrine, and more theatre performances take place at the National Theatre.
There are parades taking place throughout the month, but the highlight of the festival are the parades called Yamboko Junko on the 17th and 24th July. On these days, traditional parade floats proceed through packed streets, and the festivities culminate on the last day of the month, resulting in another street celebration, known as the ‘purification’ closing ceremony.
