View the powerful parade of yamahoko floats at the Gion Matsuri in style with premium viewing seats!
Considered one of the three great festivals in Japan, Gion Matsuri is a festival held at Yasaka Shrine that has continued for over 1,000 years. This festival begins with the “Kippu-iri” ritual on July 1 and the closing service at Eki Shrine on July 31 for a span of one month. Among the highlights are the parades of yamahoko floats, said to be like moving art museums. They are even registered as an UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Against the backdrop of the Kyoto City Hall main building, a symbol of the town of Kyoto, leisurely view these yamahoko floats from the comfort of your own premium seat.
