Return of the Jidai Matsuri

The Jidai Matsuri is a festival that features an elaborate parade from the Imperial Palace to the Heian Shrine. The costumes represent various eras and characters in Kyoto’s history. It is held yearly on October 22 but because of the rains, it was pushed back by a day.

While watching the parade, it’s hard not to be impressed by the creativity. Japanese aesthetics and attention to detail are extraordinary.

They are out of this world.
