Jidai Matsuri Festival
A photographic tour
The Jidai Matsuri, or Festival of Ages, is a spectacular celebration of Japan’s history that takes place in Kyoto and Tokyo every 22nd October. Participants dress up in beautifully made costumes from different epochs, including famous historical figures from feudal times, and parade through the city.
Here are some of our favourite photos of the festival, from our photo archive. Enjoy!
