AOI MATSURI 2014 (Part 1)

on
May 16, 2014

Yesterday I had a chance to attend Aoi Matsuri, one of the three largest Kyoto festivals. It’s highlight is the procession of about 500 people dressed in imperial court costumes of the Heian period (794-1185).
The weather wasn’t perfect, but it’s better this way than suffer from a sunstroke.
Here is the first half of my portrait gallery of procession participants.
