Ohara-me Festival

Ohara is in the northern part of Kyoto City. But there are a lot of fields for rice and vegetables and mountains in the Ohara site.
At Ohara until 1st of this month, you can transform into Oharame which was the women in a traditional costume and sold some vegetables and firewood at downtown in the old days. (free of charge) And you can walk around Ohara, of course visit temples while wearing this costume. GTK would like to recommend to visit Sanzen-in Temple and Jyakko-in Temple, where the colored maple in the moss garden are amazingly beautiful.
