Kyoto's summer features①Kyoto Gojozaka Ceramic Festival
Why don't you refresh yourself by changing the tableware of the table for those who have lost their appetite due to the heat everyday?If it's a large-scale pottery market that is crowded with many people every year, I think you can find your favorite bowls.Gojozaka is said to be the birthplace of Kiyomizuyaki.The "Kyoto Gojozaka Ceramic Festival" with around 400 stores around it will be held during the "THE SPIRIT WELCOME." that I introduced the other day.You can buy not only Kiyomizuyaki and Kyoyaki but also pottery from all over Japan and works by young artists.I would like to go out looking for a ceramic tumbler to drink beer!Gojozaka area, Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto CityNear Keihan Kiyomizu-gojo Station
Obon in Kyoto③Gozan Okuribi
The spirits who came to this world in "THE SPIRIT WELCOME."spend Obon at each home and go back to the other world by Gozan Okuribi.On the day, events such as Shoronagashi and Manto-e are held all over Kyoto, creating a fantastic atmosphere.The okuribi is lit in the order of Daimonji, Myo, Ho, Funagata, Hidari Daimonji and Torii, and there are various viewing points.Hotel plans that offer a view of all the five mountains sell out quickly, but it's also tasteful to see only one or two mountains.Obon in Kyoto①What is a custom unique to Kyoto called "THE SPIRIT WELCOME."?

Obon in Kyoto②The Yurei Kosodateame that you want to try in this season.
It is close to Rokudochinno-ji and has been open for more than 450 years "Kyoto Specialty Yurei Kosodateame Minatoya Yurei Kosodateame Honpo". The amber candy has a simple taste. There is an anecdote that a woman who died with a baby became a ghost after being buried inthe ground and bought candy at night and raised a baby in a grave. It is also called "Shusse candy" because baby, whose life was saved by candy,later became a high priest. It is sold throughout the year, but it seems to bemore flavorful during Obon season.Kyoto Specialty Yurei Kosodateame Minatoya Yurei Koikuame Honpo80 -1 Rokuro-cho, 2 chome Matsubara-doriYamatooji-higashi-iru, Higashiyama-ku, KyotoIt is a 6 minute walk from the city bus stop Kiyomizu-michi.Obon in Kyoto①What is a custom unique to Kyoto called "THE SPIRIT WELCOME."?

The Obon festival when the ancestors return to this world.In Kyoto, there is a custom to call the spirits of ancestors "Osarai-san (Oshorei)" and go to a temple called the border between this world and the other world to welcome them.One of those temples is Rokudochinno-ji Temple.The "Takanomaki" sold at this flower shop on the approach is an important item to welcome the spirits.It is said that the spirit who came by the welcome bell dwells in the branch of the Maki tree, so if you stop by before you go home, the spirit gets lost!?Let's go straight home to pick up the spirits so they won't get lost.Rokudochinno-ji Temple595 Komatsu-cho, Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto City3 minutes walk from the city bus stop Kiyomizu-michi
