Around late at night past midnight, usually where people come and Otokoyama cable ends open at 6 pm. Their goal was to Iwashimizu Festival held once a year.

Festival of Kamo (Aoi Festival) of Kamo Shrine of the Japan’s three biggest festival held by Imperial ordinance, the Kasuga festival of Kasuga Taisha Shrine are high in recognition nationwide, but it is the characteristic of this special event that there are few people who know it even if I live in Kyoto. This festival that it is no wonder begins at late-night 2:00, and the visitor extremely in comparison with two of the remainder decreases, too. (I call it “a strange festival” from it without permission, and there, please forgive “the strange festival” because it is actually a festival held by Imperial ordinance though I hit it rudely)

I saw the figure of the person considered to have come for a trip from the foreign countries in the visitor this time. It is a waste of にも without being concerned that a person living in Kyoto does not know the charm of this festival.

This festival was very fantastic and was worth seeing it even if I stayed up late from Wednesday.

Hundred night descends the mountain, on the sounds of Gagaku

Past three o’clock, late-night starts at 2:00 Gagaku sounds, leave the shrine. A stone lantern light. Demigods to swinging lanterns, old ancient practices in the us, end up feeling “classic moves” and referred to 500 people overnight, away from the world of beauty.

This celebration out fish and birds in 863, Hachiman Okami otokoyama hem Hojo River likely began as a ritual wish for happiness are alive and living peace. Were, but I can’t help thinking, in daytime I then begin Bugaku court musicians dancing people, Portable Shrine floats to become glamorous, 1469-87 years after over 200 years or stop, there are various things in its present form it was.

Incidentally, this celebration begins from 2 o’clock midnight and continue until the evening, but details is the website link below.
