One of the three big festivals in Kyoto

People are getting prepared for a big festival called" Jidai Matsuri". Kyoto citizens are wearing costumes from each period like Edo period or Heian period raging from A.D 1200 to now.
I took it around 8:30 on Octover 22th, Friday.

2000 people line up and walk from Imperial Palace to Heian jingu shrine. It starts at 12:00.

It is the route map.(in English.)

I think it is very hard work to prepare costumes and other goods for 2000 people. I wonder where they keep them for a year.

This is the 100 times from the start.
It ig something to keep doing for 100 years.

Click here if you want to watch a short movie for 3 minutes by real player. It is the one just below the picture.

citizens are doing this as volunteers or a part time job.
