The Gion Festival dates from the late 9th century when Kyoto became the capital of Japan. It originated as a ritual of Yasaka Shrineto encounter the national epidemic. It continues from the 1st of July until the 29th of July every year. The festival reaches its climax on the 17th of July when beautiful and gorgeous floats, decorated with time-honored treasures, form a procession marching through the streets of the city. It shows the energy and enthusiasm of the townspeople who once reconstructed the town of Kyoto which had been reduced to ashes by the civil war in the 15th century.
The tapestry represents the joyful parade of the grand floats in artistic textile.
