Trial of Parade "Hikizome" of Gion Matsuri

The float construction completed and a "trial of parade" was performed yesterday and today.

The highlight of the festival "Yama-hoko Junko" parade will be on the 17th, but women are not allowed to touch floats, except today and tomorrow.

It is said that you can have profits of good health and luck if you touch the ropes of floats.

So everyone rushed to the floats including myself!

The Gion music and the creaking sound of the floats... Very exciting!

And, the eve of the festival "Yoi-Yama" will begin tomorrow.
