The Ryokan Collection has successfully secured 4 special seats for Gion Matsuri in Kyoto held on 16/17 July 2023 and with super price only for our members.
Enjoy an exclusive visit to the Kanko-boko Float, one of the Gion Matsuri Festival’s most popular floats to visit. You will be able to experience going on the float, listening to live festival music (hayashi) and having a private guided tour around the float’s marvelous collection of ornaments.
Savor Kyoto’s seasonal dishes at one of Kyoto’s long-established restaurants, Kinobu. After sunset, visit Kanko-boko to witness the climax of the festival’s eve, Chochin Otoshi or “the lantern fall,” from a reserved area. When the festival music culminates at the end of the evening, the long strands of lanterns by the float will drop, creating a dramatic scene. The following day, you will watch the procession of the floats, Yamahoko Junko, from premium seats.
