Aoi Matsuri Festival (Part 5)

Saio-Dai Princess procession starts with court ladies called myobu.

Saio-Dai Princess represents the Imperial Princess. Her 12-layer kimono called "Juni Hitoe" weighs 30 kgs.

Saio-Dai Princess is selected in April every year, and she has to be a native of Kyoto, single, and in her early 20s.

So cute!!!

The whole procession was about 1 km long!
