Sometimes in Kyoto I come across traditions I don’t fully understand. Like the wearing of these armors by children (boys) during the Yoroi Kizome Ceremony (coming of age festival).
Last two weeks the Rakumachirakuya festival is being held throughout Kyoto. Activities ranging from a cooking class to an insight lecture into working with roof tiles are held in kyo-machiya’s to promote machiya culture.
