Gion Matsuri

K and I went to check out the 山鉾 at the Gion Matsuri on Sunday 15 July 2018.

In addition to checking out the elaborate floats, we ate meat on sticks, pushed our way through sweaty crowds, deliberated about which crepes were best, and drank beers on the street with friends and new acquaintances from Yale University who happened to be in town.
