The 41th Kyoto Traditional Entertainment Festival took place on Feb 27 at Kyoto Kaikan. Several groups performed songs, music and dance of the several festivals held every year in Kyoto. "Pictures not allowed" as usual but I couldn't help it when I saw Maiko Mameyuri. Sumimasen ne.

And I also enjoyed watching these children performing yaseshamenchi odori (Akimoto temple dance). This festival takes place in Yase every year since 1707.
