From March 6th to 15th, Hanatoro/花灯路 2015 was held. Some shrines and temples were opened at night for that,and Touro(lamp) Lighted the road around the part of Higashiyama. The event began from 2003, people can stroll from Kiyomizu to Shoren-in(South to North). A lot of people visited! During Hanatoro, Gion Tea Ceremony was held at March 7th and 8th. Maiko-San served us Macha and Wagashi/和菓子(Japanese sweets) if people correct stamps before these two days to shop at Shijo-Dori stores(Gion) or pay ¥1000 at Yasaka-Shrine or Maruyama-Park.
At 7 pm and 8pm, Kitsun-no-Yomeiri/狐の嫁入り(Marriage of Fox) was held during Hanatoro!
This Wagashi is made by Kagizen-Yoshifusa/鍵善良房,that is good Wagashi store, well known as Kuzukiri/葛切り. ( I’ll try it!)
