Kanko-Sai (Gods Return to Yasaka Shrine)

July 24th was the day that three "Mikoshi (portable shrine for gods)" return to Yasaka Shrine, after gods watched over the Gion Matsuri festivities for a week in their temporary home called Otabisho near Teramachi.  

After I finished my work around 6PM, I was walking towards the intersection of Shijo and Nihino-Toin, and saw that Kanko-Sai parade was just being conducted. How lucky I was!

I thoroughly enjoyed Gion Matsuri of this year!
