Kyoto's summer fun Gion Matsuri Festival ②IT'S NOT FOOD!? Gion Matsuri Festival Omamori charm "Chimaki "

When people ask, "Chimaki" they often imagine rice cakes and rice wrapped in bamboo leaves for Tango no Sekku.

However, "Chimaki " in Gion Matsuri Festival is not something to eat but something to celebrate!

At each Yamaboko and Yasaka Shrine, you can see unique Chimaki with different prayers and designs.

Decorate the front door to prevent bad things and plagues from entering the house.

Why don't you look for a chimaki that fits you perfectly?
