Yabusame Aoi Festival in Kyoto

Aoi Matsuri / Festival in Kyoto

My favourite city in Japan is Kyoto. This city has so many things to offer (good food, sightseeing spots, festivals) . One of the highlights are the summer festivals. The festival with the longest history is  the Aoi Matsuri. It is also known as the Hollyhock festival or the Kamo festival. Aoi Matsuri is one of the three major annual festivals alongside the Jidai Matsuri and Gion Matsuri held in Kyoto, Japan. It is a festival for the Kamo shrines, the Shimogamo shrine and the Kamigamo shrine.
