Gion Matsuri Parade Day!

Rainy season has ended in Kyoto, and the weather was bright and sunny (and hot!) for The Gion Matsuri parade today.

After the parade we visited Ginkakuji (the Silver Pavilion) and Kiyomizu Temple, where we gathered for a group photo.

Some of the group, including co-leader Greg Diehl, partook of the holy water at Kiyomizu. We’re not really sure what effect it’s supposed to have, but we figured that on a hot day, we’d settle for hydration!
