Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today one of the most famous festivals (of the over 100.000) in Japan, the Gione (Gion Festival), is our prompt for today. This festival takes place in Kyoto and last for 30 days, it's a festival that occurs in the whole month of July. So let us look a bit closer to that festival.
Hereafter I will first share a video about Gion Matsuri.
The Gion Festival takes place annually in Kyoto and is one of the most famous festivals in Japan. It goes for the entire month of July and is crowned by a parade, the Yamaboko Junkō on July 17. It takes its name from Kyoto's Gion district.
