姫路ゆかたまつり Himeji Yukata Matsuri (22~24 Jun 2015)

The Himeji Yukata Matsuri is held annually where boys and girls come donned in yukatas, welcoming the beginning of summer!

Here’s to my first 祭り (matsuri, festival) this year!

The Himeji Yukata festival is done on a smaller scale without the huge parades and crazy firework displays. It’s a local festival full of food and game stalls, and the good looking people looking good in yukata.

The other perk of wearing yukata during those 3 days is that you’d get discounts off several of Himeji’s popular attractions.

If you do not own yukata, you can rent it for a day in several shops found in front of JR Himeji station itself. A day’s rental typically cost around 3~4000 yen. A full set comes with the hairdo as well as putting on a yukata.
