Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Enjoy Kyo-no-tanabata!

Today is 37 degree in Kyoto although it was estimated this summer is not too hot before starting this summer in TV news.
I used to live under such a terrible summer heat, but it’s tough actually.

I decided to walk along the river to make me cool yesterday, so I started to walk from Nijo Castle, where the annual summer event, Kyo-no-tanabata is being held.
At the castle, I enjoyed watching an interesting image being screened on the castle wall called “projection mapping”.

After that, I walked up along the Horikawa stream while I enjoyed several art works.
I could feel cooler a bit!!

This summer event was started just a few years ago.
Therefore, we can enjoy two events this month, which are this event and famous ritual, Daimonji-no-okuribi on 16th.
The summer in Kyoto is severe, but instead of it, there are some attracted events are held. (Daimonji-no-okuribi is not able to said “entertainment”. This is a sacred ritual that send our ancestors coming back to another world.)

For the detail of Kyo-no-tanabata event, check out the GTK page,

Don’t miss it! It’s going to end on 11th of this month.
