Think of the Jidai Matsuri Festival ③ "Shirakawa-Me Kenka Retsu (Lady of Shirakawa to offer flowers)" to decorate the end of the Jidai Fuzoku Gyoretsu (Historic Pageant)

The Jidai Matsuri Festival's "Jidai Fuzoku Gyoretsu (Historic Pageant)" that I introduced the other day.

There are also many women in the procession, such as "Women of the Edo period" and "Medieval women's group (Yoshino period)".

Among them, why don't you pay attention to "Shirakawa-Me Kenka Retsu (Lady of Shirakawa to offer flowers)" which is the last item in the line?

A professional woman who lived in the basin of Shirakawa River and has been selling flowers since the Heian period.

In the procession, you can see the "Shirakawa-Me (Lady of Shirakawa)" with a flower basket on their heads.

It is interesting to know the history of Kyoto through Jidai Matsuri Festival.
