Japan Festival Tour

Japan Festival Tour

Tour Descriptions

  • Matsuri is the Japanese word meaning festival, and the Japanese people take their festivals seriously. A visit to a Japanese matsuri is a fantastic opportunity to get a glimpse of the often shy and reserved Japanese at their most uninhibited. As a foreigner, you may even find yourself being encouraged into joining in the proceedings, particularly at the smaller local matsuri, a special Japanese experience indeed.

Takayama Festival (April / October)

Takayama Festival

The Takayama Festival (Takayama Matsuri) is ranked as one of Japan's three most beautiful festivals. It is held twice a year in spring and autumn in the old town of Takayama and attracts large numbers of spectators.

The Spring Festival (April 14-15) is the annual festival of the Hie Shrine in the southern half of Takayama's old town. While the shrine is also known as Sanno-sama, the spring festival is also called Sanno Festival.

Likewise, the Autumn Festival (October 9-10) is the annual festival of the Hachiman Shrine in the northern half of the old town, and the festival is also known as Hachiman Festival.

The spring and autumn festivals have similar attractions and schedules. Each festival features its own set of about a dozen festival floats (yatai). During the year, the tall and heavily decorated floats are stored in storehouses, which are scattered across Takayama's old town (except the floats exhibited in the Yatai Kaikan).

Kyoto Gion Festival (July)

Kyoto Gion Festival

Although Japan's ancient capital, Kyoto, celebrates one festival every day somewhere in the city, the Gion Matsuri is generally believed to be the best, and marks the highlight of the Kyoto festival year.

Dating back to the ninth century, the Gion Matsuri has its roots in a purification ritual intended to clear plague from the city, and now spans the month of July, with most of the events falling in the middle of the month. Festivities reach their peak with the Yamahoko-Junko Parade on July 17th. During the festival, Kyoto's streets are filled with traditional gion-bayashi music and decorated floats, with are lit up on the evening of the 16th, turning the city into a magical scene. Kyotoites wader the streets in festive summer kimono, and the air is scented with special festival foods.
