Seimei Festival

It is known that Autumn is one of the peak season, due to the red leaves.

We are approaching this season, but we have many events going on even before the spectaculars in Kyoto.

One of these is upcoming on September 22 and 23.
It is Seimei festival at Seimei shrine.

In this event, Kagura dance and music performance will be took place with some lantern held to welcome the spirit of Abe no Seimei, a historical person, on 22.

On 23, more or less 500 people will be on march around the shrine with traditional music played.

This event strongly represents a part of our history, so if you have some interests in those kind, it might be a great opportunity to see the historical aspects.

You can go there by bus no. 9, getting off at Ichijo Modoribashi Seimeijinja-mae.
