Next on my itinerary in Japan was to see the Jidai Matsuri Parade — The Festival Of The Ages.
It has over 2000 participants dressed in costumes from the last ten centuries in Japan.

Truth is, after I ate at Soumushi’s, the parade was now near the far end of the route and I opted not to walk there. Instead I covered my blistered feet with band aides. That is why these photos are all from Flikr.

I saw the parade the last time I was in Japan and loved seeing all the costumes.

    How wonderful, such vibrant colours. I especially love the picture of the carriage.

    I never knew about this festival! How fantastic and fun it looks! The one that I know of that’s in Kyoto is the Gion festival that happens during the summer. I’ve always wanted to see it because it’s one of the more famous festivals in Japan.
