Oharame Matsuri, at various places around Ohara, Kyoto

23rd April - 10th May, 2016 | Oharame Matsuri, at various places around Ohara, Kyoto
Situated at the foot of Mount Hiei, the area of Ohara in Kyoto’s outer suburbs is renowned for its natural beauty.
Another thing Ohara is known for is its spring festivities, in which it celebrates the Oharame, women workers noted for their aizome (indigo-dyed) working clothes.
Back when Kyoto was the capital, you’d likely see these women commuting back and forth with their wares balanced on top of their heads.
