Gion Festival & Tea Ceremony for AUGUST

The Gion Festival is getting towards its Climax. However from beginning of this week, West Japan is under very very heavy rain.

There are displays of Yama-hoko on the streets as well as food stands from 14th night until tomorrow. However due to the rain, not many people visit compared to usual year.

According to the forecast rain season should end by this Friday so the parade of floats held on Saturday should be sunny.
