Have you ever seen Gion-Matsuri, one of three big festivals in Kyoto?
This festival comes from one event called "goryo-e" of which drove away an evil sprit in the 9th century.
32 "hoko" big floats will be constructed on around 10th of this month at some hoko-cho towns. After finishing construction, you can step inside some of the floats.
On 17th of this month, the highlight of Gion-Matsuri will be held. 32 hoko will move around downtown Kyoto.
Do you know the best place to see it?
