Mikoshi, Festival at Higashiyama

Carrying the Mikoshi, Higashiyama
Kyoto 2010

This is another great thing about Kyoto. You just walk from a garden to another in Higashiyama on Sunday afternoon and you suddenly bump into a Matsuri (festival) and get impressed by this photogenic scene of people carrying a Mikoshi (portable shrine) in the middle of the street..
