Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival will be held from July 1st to 15th in Hakata, Fukuoka.
It is a big festival which has been continued more than 700 years.
There are 14 decorated Yamakasa and 7 moving Yamakasa.
The Decorated Yamakasa are about 10 meters high.
And there is a front and back side to each.
The Front one is faced to Kushida shrine and is usually about warriors.
The Back side are a lot of times from fairy-tales or TV animations.
Gorgeous dolls on both sides are made by doll makers in Hakata.
And on July 15th the mobile Yamakasa move to Kushida shrine and in Hakata.
I will go to see this years Yamakasa.
