Gion Festival

My personal recommendation is to not go to the procession (unless you are determined), but go during the evenings of the 14th-16th. The floats will be displayed on the street and the street will be free for pedestrian traffic. It’s more fun to go in a yukata (a light summer kimono) when it is cooler outside and there is space to move around.
