Kamo Kurabeuma - traditional horse racing

kamigamo-kurabeuma-0.jpg

On May 5 during a long holiday, I went to see the traditional horse racing event, "Kamo Kurabeuma" at Kamigamo Shrine in Kyoto.

This event has been held every year since 1093 and is said to be the birthplace of horse racing in Japan.

A straight course is set up in the shrine grounds, and two horses compete for speed on the 150 meter section.

It was a bit far away and there were so many people that it was difficult for me to shoot horse racing scenery.

The reason that the priest is climbing high is to judge the race match.

Last weekend I had a picnic at Kyoto Gyoen.

Cherry blossom was in full bloom at the beginning of April, but "Demizu no Shidarezakura" also became leaves and was swaying in the wind. No one has come to see now.

On the other hand, ”Yaezakura” cherry blossoms near "Demizu no ogawa" was just in full bloom.

Hitigiri - Hinamatsuri's sweets in Kyoto

hichigiri.jpg

"Hitigiri", the traditional confectioneries of Hinamatsuri festival in Kyoto.

It is a pastry sweet after sticking out rice cakes roundly and making indentation and placing kinton.

This made by Kyoto confectionery maker, "Sasaya Iori". The shape is quite different depending on the shop, but the part of the rice cake is shaped like a ladle torn off.

Yesterday, I went to Nijo-jo castle in Kyoto.

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Enthronement of His Majesty the Emperor, it was free admission to Nijo-jo castle on 24 February.

Despite the cold winter season, it was crowded with many tourists and visitors.

Otemon gate and Karamon gate were restored in recent repair projects. But Honmaru-goten palace was under restoration and I could not see at all.

nijo-jo-3.jpg

Ninomaru Goten palace was open, so I could enter its inside. It is regrettable that I can not show them because photography is prohibited.

In plum forest, plums began to bloom cleanly. The contrast with the moat was very nice.

This year 16,000 runners took part. About 5 hours after starting from 9 o'clock in the morning, a lot of people were finished running safely at the goal line in front of Heian Jingu in Okazaki.

The time limit on the race was a rest of 40 minutes, a lot of runners came back to the goal. It was hard work for a long time in the cold!
