New update - "Music Frequency Analyzer" ver 2.0


"Music Frequency Analyzer" has been updated to ver 2.0 today!

"Music Frequency Analyzer" is a new sound source analysis tool for digital music content.

Do you know what kind of sound characteristics your favorite music source has? This app allows you to check the sound characteristics of music sources.

For example, you can find out the bass and treble frequencies, the frequency overlap at the beginning and climax of the music, the recording condition, the background noise level, and more.
It can also be used as reference information for acoustic evaluation when the same sound source is played back on audio equipment.


This app analyzes the information in the music file and displays the sound characteristics by FFT analysis and 1/3 octave band analysis in real time. It can also display quantitative analysis of their peak hold and average values.

In addition, with the fluctuation analysis, you can also see the degree of "1/f fluctuation", which shows the trend of frequency distribution of the sound source.

Ymamahoko-junko of Gion Matsuri Atomatsuri

The Yamahoko-junko (procession of floats) of Gion Matsuri Atomatsuri was held for the first time in three years.

The Yamahoko procession will be held in the reverse order of Gion Matsuri Sakimatsuri. The procession starts at Karasuma Oike and finishes at Shijo Karasuma.

A little after 8:00 a.m., I made a fixed-point observation at Shinmachi Sanjo of the Yamahoko floats heading for the starting point. Four Yamahoko floats on Shinmachi street and one on Sanjo street will pass this point.

- Hachiman-yama

- Kitakannon-yama

- Minamikannon-yama

- Ofune-hoko

- Takayama

The highlight of this year's festival was the resurrection of Takayama after a 196-year absence.
It located on the east side of Sanjo Shinmachi, it was necessary to turn 90 degree to go north on Shinmachi street. Takayama float had a hard time turning a street at a narrow intersection.



It moved safely to Shinmachi Oike. A tapestry with an eagle design was displayed on the rear side. The brand new white wooden roof shone in the morning sun.

Yoiyama of Gion Matsuri Atomatsuri


Tonight was the last Yoiyama of Gion Matsuri Atomatsuri.



Many tourists seemed to be there because it was the last day of Yoiyama.



I left early to avoid the risk of corona infection. Tomorrow's Yamahoko Junko is expected to be held under very fine weather.

Yamahoko Junko of Gion Matsuri Sakimatsuri 2022


For the first time in three years, Yamahoko Junko (float procession) of Gion Matsuri Sakimatsuri was held.

It was very crowded with tourists overflowing the main parade route. The number of people was about 140,000.

The parade reached its goal at Shinmachi Oike.

The floats returned to their respective towns. However, the order of return was adjusted here because it took time for the bigger floats to turn around and Shinmachi-dori was too narrow for them to pass each other.

- Hoshoyama

- Kankokuboko : It stopped at a crank on Shinmachi Anekoji, backed up once, turned the wheel again and again, and managed to pass a house without destroying it.

- Tukihoko : Tuji-mawashi (90-degree rotation) at Shinmachi Oike, smooth and successful in three turns.
