Located at a shrine which alas, does not exist in English 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 6 p.m. to until 10 p.m., including a chance to see the geisha entertaining and playing games.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
