Overview
More
On the second Saturday and Sunday of June, the Yoshiwara Gion Festival is held, a signature harbinger of the beginning of summer in the city of Fuji. A traditional festival has been held here for over 350 years, and the locals refer to it as "Otenno-san." Considered the only Gion Festival in the Tokaido area, this festival features over 200 outdoor stalls plying their wares along the 1km area of the main street -- the impact of all these shops in one place is truly impressive. In addition, twenty-one portable shrines make the rounds around three sites, and they are joined by a marching orchestra, creating a spectacle that is well worth the trip.
