Hakata Gion Yamakasa 2014 Photo Report

July is one of the famous Fukuoka's traditional festivals, Yamakasa season! Hakata Gion Yamakasa's Kazari-yama(decorative floats) are placed on display in 14 locations around Tenjin and Hakata from July 1st to midnight on July 14th (0:00am, July 15th). The side of the float that faces towards Kushida Shrine is called the “omote” (front) and the opposite side to this is called the “mi-okuri” (send-off) side. You’ll often see the “front” of these floats adorned with beautiful “Hakata ningyo” (Hakata dolls) and the “send-off” side displaying characters from children’s stories and popular anime. We have taken photos of Kazari-yama at all 14 locations, please enjoy!!
