Twenty sail boats on the river Oigawa, in the district of Arashiyama reproducing a water festival millennium. Every year we see a show full of grace. This event originated in a reception ceremony of the Emperor when he came to visit this place. After a ritual celebrated at the shrine at noon, people dressed in ancient costumes cross the beautiful bridge Togetsukyo and boarded the boats. The costumes are very colorful kimono and children in especially touching. The boats are decorated in bows in the shape of dragon heads or phoenix. In each boat is assigned a specific role: the music played by traditional musicians, dancing or poetry reading. Speaking fans of all colors are left over from the water by women wearing the court dress made up of 12 kimono bunk, known as the juni-Hito. The show is the most graceful and unique experience.
