The Motomiya Festival is held every July at the Fushimi Inari Shrine, and the Yoimiya Festival is held on the night before. As a Shinto ritual, lanterns are lit during the Yoimiya Festival. The lit lanterns include both the stone lanterns on the shrine grounds and the lantern offerings. This photo was taken during last year’s festival.

The Gion Festival
-----
Along with the Gion-bayashi melody played with flutes, drums,and gongs, spectators get fascinated by the charm of the lit lanterns. The video shows the famous fall of lanterns on the Kanko-hoko during the yoiyama. Komagata lanterns decorating the hoko are dropped at the same time, in preparation for the next day’s procession of yama-hoko. This quirky tradition draws cheers from spectators.

The Gion Festival
-----
Sharing drinks with the gods has long been a custom in Japan,particularly during festivals. Sake that has been offered to the gods is shared among festival attendees, who, after drinking, are said to become enlightened about the power of the gods, as well as their connection with them. This is why you can find many sake offerings and barrels at the Gion Festival. You can also find sake offered together with other offerings such as Kyoto vegetables and confectionery at the yama-hoko float storehouses. Such offerings include 1.8-liter Gekkeikan sake bottles.

The Gion Festival

The vicinity of Shijo Street becomes the most crowded during the three days of the yoiyama (festival eve) of the Gion Festival. Three floats feature Komagata lanterns decorated with Gekkeikan’s logo: the Kanko-hoko to the west of Karasuma Street,the Naginata-hoko to the east of the same street, and the Kikusui-hoko in Muromachi Street.

The Gion Festival
-----
The Gion Festival originated from a ritual designed to counter the plague during the Heian period. With more than a thousand years of history, it is a festival revived and well preserved by locals despite interruptions caused by the Onin War (1467-1477) and other wars.
