What is Gion Matsuri?

The origin of Gion Matsuri dates back to Heian period.

Plague spread all over Japan.

It was said that it was a curse of Gozutenno and Susano-no mikoto.

Urabe-no himamaro built the same number of 66 Hoko as the country in Shinsenen.

We moved the evil spirits into this to purify the foulness.

And Gozutenno was enshrined.
He sent 3 Mikoshi to Yasakajinja.

It is said that the origin is the Gion Goryo-e ceremony which prayed for the extermination of the disease.
