SpotGion-bayashi (festival music)

As July arrives each year, the sounds of Gion-bayashi festival music can be heard around town while business and schooling starts to suffer as the locals turn their minds to the upcoming festivities held over the entire month of July but reaching the first zenith at the Yoiyama Lantern event at the mid-point (14th-16th) with the Yamahoko Junko Float Parade following close behind on the 17th, when, at 9am the Naginata-boko Float heads a parade of 32 floats through the streets - all the time to the strains of Gion-bayashi music in an event made all the more interesting when witnessing the larger floats turning the corners.
