Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival 

Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival time came again this year.

Though I also posted about this last year.

It will be held from July 1st to 15th in  Fukuoka.

This year is the first time since it was  registered as a Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage.

It has continued for 776 years.

14 decorated Yamakasa are located at different places in Fukuoka city.

This one is in front of Hakata station.

Every Yamagasa has a front and back side.

And on July 15th the mobile Yamakasa move around Hakata.
