Area : Senzaki
Known honorifically as "Gion-sama," this shrine holds gifts from medieval Japanese ruler Yoshitaka Ouichi, including Noh theater masks and paintings of ancient whaling traditions.
Each July, during the Gion Festival, floats carrying dancers and traditional music troops will parade through the town, giving a distinctly retro feeling that blurs the lines between past and present.
Senzaki Gion Festival is held annually on July 26th.
