We came back to Japan just on time to see this Jidai Matsuri Festival. This festival (the Festival of the Ages presenting different periods of the history of Kyoto) is held every year on October 22nd. October 22nd was the day, over 1,200 years ago, when Emperor Kammu decided to move the capital to Kyoto. The festival is symbolic of Kyoto, her people and the city great history and culture.
