Summer vegetables in July

Kyoto,we have one of the biggest festivals,GION MATSURI  in July.
You can see about 32 wooden floats  on the streets in the central of kyoto.
These are the pictures i took July 16 in evening.

This name is MOON float.

The boys are parading on the main street.

I enjoyed taking a walk in late evening after the classes.

It is very excited and nice tradition.

The next morning July 17 is the parade's day.
It is beautiful sunny day!

A lot of men are working hardly to move the floats with their hands.


I use summer vegetables recently.

Unagi Donburi (steamed eel with rice)

Fushimi Tougarasgu (Kyoto local sweet geen papper) & baby sardine
