May is one of the perfect seasons to enjoy Kyoto! Why don’t you enjoy really fresh air in the cozy, late Spring weather strolling through the comfortable paths surrounded by beautiful green leaves and colorful flowers of Iris and Azalea. On 15th of May, Please do not miss a big festival in Kyoto: the Aoi Matsuri Festival!! This is one of the three big festivals in Kyoto along with the Gion Festival and the Jidai Matsuri (Festival of Ages)! The highlight is the gorgeous parade recreating the exact scene of the ancient Heian Court.
