Gion festival ... of light-up - night of a festival car, the stand

When it is past 19:00, a festival car, the stand is lighted up by lighting when a book of the night begins to drop and pleases us while bringing on an impression different from the day.
When it is at night, a festival car, the stands which go down relatively over a wide area, and were turned are gathered in Naritasan Omotesando Street, and the shout of young people becomes still louder for smart festival music in total in the daytime, too. Around Omotesando between Narita Station and the Naritasan door front is wrapped up in terrible heat by the traffic of a large number of customers and festival cars, stands.

Though meet a festival car, the stand that crowded Omotesando is turned a pull, and soak itself in the atmosphere of the festival to the full while walking at slow speed; excellent; do it, and enter the shop along just what, and is good though look at a festival car, the stand which comes and goes in Omotesando while taking the chilly cool air over a window, and enjoy a meal and chattering.

Would the atmosphere of ten festival cars, stands which go down late at night until (on 5th, 6th on 21:00, 7th around 22:00), and are turned and festival like to be fully thoroughly enjoyed?

About a festival dance

Beautifulness, beautifulness, beautifulness.
A sound to beat the priest's staff with a tone of the festival music is heard. It is the appearance of the festival dance (a lever is wound up).
The woman before geisha people and the wedding ceremony served in old days, but the children of the elementary school work these days.

A flower shade is put to the back in Ise hakama, a tabi and sandals to a kimono. A festival car and a stand are led while sounding a priest's staff held in a hand.

The clothes of the festival dance stop by like a festival short coat and the folding fan of the young people's ream in each town, and a color and a design vary.
What is compared is interesting.

The line of the festival dance to add bloom to the powerful festival car, guidance of the stand, the figure of lovely children please our eyes.
