(Kyoto-78/Before Covid - Summer)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

緊急事態宣言が解除され観光シーズンが再開。あらためてコロナ前の京都の四季を振り返る。

夏の京都、疫病退散を祈る「祇園祭」。(2020-2021年と2年連続で山鉾巡行は中止)

山鉾巡行のトップ、「長刀鉾」は祭りの始まりということでいつもワクワクさせてくれる。

The state of emergency was lifted and the tourist season would resume soon.  Looked back on the four seasons of Kyoto before Covid.
Summer in Kyoto, the season of "Gion Festival" to pray for the end of the plague.  (Yamaboko Procession was cancelled for two consecutive years, 2020-2021.)

The Naginataboko float, the top of the procession, was always exciting as it marked the beginning of the festival.

エンヤラヤーと音頭取りが指図しながら進む。山鉾は1台当たり、手伝い方(約10名)、大工方(7-8名)、車方(7-9名)、囃し方(40-50名)、曵き手(40-50名)の100名を超えるチームで運営されている。街全体の協力がないと成り立たない行事だ。

The float was led by the guides with shoutings.  Each float was managed by a team of more than 100 people, consisting of about 10 helpers, 7-8 carpenters, 7-9 car drivers, 40-50 musicians, and 40-50 ebbers.  Without the cooperation of the entire town residents, this event would not be possible.

山鉾は巡行の前日まで公開されている。多くの山鉾は男女搭乗できるが、長刀鉾と放火鉾は今もの女人禁制。

Yamahoko floats were open to the public until the day before the procession.  Most of the floats were open to men and women, but the Naginataboko and Hokaboko floats were still closed to women as tradition.

四条通り沿いの月鉾は場所も良く、人気のある山鉾。

The Tsukihoko float located at a good location on Shijo Dori was a popular float.

来年2022年には祇園祭が再開されることを期待。

Hope that the Gion Festival would resume next year in 2022.
