Pinky Ring's Journey in Search of Beauty of Kyoto III

The Saigu Procession

In ancient times, the imperial family sent their princess to Ise Shrine in Mie Prefecture to serve as shrine maidens. Based on this history, a gorgeous Heian period procession will pass through the Saga Arashiyama area. The procession departs from Nonomiya Shrine and goes Togetsu-kyo Bridge, and finally Arashiyama Port. A ritual is held after the procession.
