This is also the one hundredth anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival here, so there are several special events unique to this year.
1 Way to experience it
Other than the firework, what impressed me the most was the way the event was organized and the way the traffic flow, especially after the firework, were managed.
It's really a big event of fireworks that need an early reservation.
Gion Matsuri Higashiyama
After hundreds of years, it still attracts thousands of people in the streets watching the event.
In an event that you are in a rush, then go straight to the attraction and they will still sell them as in my case.
On holidays there are merits such as events and opening of stores are fulfilling, and weekdays are a bit quiet, but absolutely weekday is recommended if watching the luminaries lit is the main.
Very exciting event, great sound system, beautiful sights to behold.
This is actually three different events/venues.
If you a will go when it's snowing and cold - I adds a layer of magic to the whole event and spirit of the city
