Cloisonné Silver Medallion "Gion Festival"
This cloisonné silver medallion features the Gion Festival, which, over its long history and tradition, is renowned as one of Japan's three major festivals.
Yasaka Shrine is in Gion, Higashiyama Ward, in Kyoto City. The Gion Festival begins at Kippuiri on July 1, with many events like Hokodate, Yamadate, Yoiyama, Yamahoko Junko, Shinkousai and Kankousai lasting about one month.
Yamahoko Junko, which takes place on July 17, is the highlight of the festival. This is a parade of 32 yamahoko (decorated floats) with naginatahoko in the lead moving from Shijo Karasuma to Shinmachi Oike. There are many highlights along the way, such as Kujiaratame and Tsujimawashi.
