Free market in Kyoto

Hi everyone !

did you hear about japanese market ? if you are looking for some japanese antique items, you should go to one of the most popular market in the city : Tenjin san market located in Kitano tenmangu. this is one of the two best markets in town.This market is a great excuse to visit this shrine and see people, especially school children, rubbing the two stone bulls in front of the main hall of the shrine. It will be a great chance to buy used kimono, ceramics, antiques and bric-a-brac, along with food and drink. You’ll also rub shoulders with an interesting assortment of expats and locals.

This market is held from dawn to dusk on the 25th of each month at Kitano Tenman-gū and marks the birthday (and coincidentally the death) of the Heian-era statesman Sugawara Michizane (845–903). It’s pleasant to explore the shrine before or after you do your shopping.

You can also dress up with a kimono and enjoy the market ! please come to visit KyotoKimonoRental41 :)

Rainy season in japan

Be carreful everyone the rainy season is coming soon in Japan !

In early summer, most parts of Japan get visited by a rainy season, called tsuyu  ( plum rain ) because it coincides with the season of plums ripening.
The rainy season is caused by the collision of cold northerly and warm southerly air masses, which results in a relatively bad weather front over the Japan for several weeks.
In most of Japan, the rainy season lasts from the beginning of June to mid July, while it affects the islands of Okinawa about one month earlier. Only Japan's northern most main island of Hokkaido gets barely affected by the rainy season.
Kyoto will be affected by the rainy season from 6th of June to 19th of July.
Nevertheless, the rainy season is not the most suitable season to travel in Japan,  even though it can have its advantages. For example, travel activity is rather low during June, which clears many popular outdoor attractions from the many visitors that are usually present. Also if you'd like to visit temples and shrines, the vegetation, especially the moss, is much more lush at this time :)

nowadays don't forget to bring your umbrella when you are going outside !
