It's said that the summer of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, begins with the Gion Matsuri. It is an annual festival of Yasaka Shrine which begins July 1 and continues through July 31 every year. During this period, a series of Shinto rituals and various events take place at Yasaka Shrine and others locations in Kyoto-city. Yasaka Shrine was originally named Gion-sha and is the head shrine of the thousands of Gion-sha shrines in Japan. The Gion Matsuri is one of the three largest festivals in Kyoto, alongside the Aoi Matsuri and the Jidai Matsuri.

It is strongly advised to book your room before going to Kyoto in the festival time.
