The "Gion Festival" is the best-known festival in Japan, and Gion festivals are held not only in Kyoto but also throughout Japan. It dates back to the year 869 as a religious ceremony to appease the gods during the outbreak of an epidemic.
Susano-o Shrine was founded in 679 in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, and it is said that the Gion Festival has been continuing in Susasnoo Shrine since that time. Annually, Gion Festival is carried out over the three days in July.
The festival features Mikoshi(portable shrine) parades, especially the "Mikoshi Fight" where three mikoshis each weighing around 500-kg clash with one another like a battle is so exciting and powerful.
