A very interesting experience on the Gion Festival Japan Tour. With so many sights to see, we were hoping our tour guide Kayo should have give more details and information on the sights before we get there so you have more background on what you are about to see. However, our tour guide was very good at handling issues and keeping our days filled with things to do during the Japan tour.
Kayo tried to shift activities around due to weather conditions. Need to be more strict on time with all guests.
The seats for Gion Festival Parade were excellent.
Bright color lanterns, music in the air, dancing in the street, and food vendors on every corner can only mean one thing: festival time. The Kyoto Gion Festival stretches for the month of July, climaxing with a parade of 32 floats that can measure up to 25 feet tall, weighing 12 tons. It is easily consider the largest and best festival in Japan.
