As a Kyoto resident, I will write about Gion Matsuri although the main night festival was already over. Gion Matsuri is one of the most famous festival in Kyoto. Not only babies but also seniors walk around the streets during the main night festival days.

Cars always run on every street. However, only pedestrians walk around the streets during certain hours of the festival days.

I guess many people probably can't understand why so many people just walk around the streets while the temperature is high and humid, but the more long time you live in Kyoto the more the festival is one of our lives through the year and every year. Shuichi, Kyoto
