Joy of Gion: 2


Shin and Mei-Shun quite liked another float 黒主山=kuronushi-yama. This chic, black stage features one of 六歌仙=roku-kasen, 6 great waka poets 大伴黒主 who looks up a cherry tree in full blossom. Both of 山 like above and 鉾; including their favorite 大船鉾, elder 船鉾, famous leader 長刀鉾=naginata-hoko and 月鉾=tsuki-hoko show all different façades between day and night.
