Located at a shrine which alas, does not exist on google maps, this is a very small local festival but has plenty of Geiko and Maiko (Kyoto’s geisha). Taking place in early-to-mid May, the festival begins on the evening of the first night, with festivities running from around 6pm to until 10pm, including a chance to see the geisha entertaining and playing games. On the second day, events take place from 11am.
