Yoiyama before the Gion Matsuri in Kyoto / 宵山.

In the summer of 2015, on July 16 to be specific, we found ourselves watching the roads in Kyoto’s downtown area get closed off as daylight began to give way to night. The larger the crowds grew, the more curious we became – until we found out that we were in the middle of yoiyama (宵山), an exuberant night-market style pre-parade that leads up to the Gion Matsuri (祇園祭), which was to be held the very next day.
