The procession of “Yamahoko Junko” of Kyoto Gion Festival Atomatsuri was held today.

Before 9 am, I saw some "Yamahoko" floats heading to the starting point of Karasuma Oike.

It was revived for the first time in 193 years. As the float have not been rebuilt yet, it was only a walk procession. It seems to aim for participation in the floats that were restored in 2022.
