Yamahoko Float Construction Scene Part 2

Floats are described as "moving art museum" because of the splendid decorations.  An assembling technique with rope is equally splendid.  This technique is called a "butterfly."  Absolutely!

These craftsmen are assembling the "Tsuki Hoko (Moon Float)" and they are wearing the same Happi coats which read Tsuki Hoko.

These are Tenugui (thin Japanese hand towels) designed for Gion Festival, and can be purchased from the 14th (Yoiyama Festival Eve).

Tsuki Hoko's special street cone... Sweet!
