◇Aoi Matsuri is one of the biggest three festivals in Kyoto. The festival is known as the most elegant and wabi-sabi-ish  festival in Japan. The old fashioned parade which is decorated like people actually lived in Heian period. They start to  walk at Kyoto Imperial Palace. The number of the parade is over five hundreds of people. The well-decorated parade  heads for the Kamigamo Shrine via the Shimogamo Shrine.
The festival has been celebrated every year by both the Kamomioya Jinjya( the formal name of the    ShimogamoShrine) and the Kamowakeikazuchi Jinjya ( the formal name of the Kamigamo Shrine).The festival is done    at fifteenth May every year. The festival used to be called the Kamo Matsuri or the Kitano Matsuri. The Aoi Matsuri was  as very famous as all old Japanese high societies in Heian period used to recognize the Aoi Mtsuri is the only real  festival.

Aoi

葵祭は京都三大祭のひとつで、わが国の祭のうち最も優雅で古趣に富んだ祭として知られています。平安朝の優雅な古典行列は平安貴族そのままの姿で列をつくり、京都御所を出発、総勢500名以上の風雅な行列が下鴨神社を経て、上賀茂神社へ向かいます。賀茂御祖神社(下鴨神社)と賀茂別雷神社の例祭(れいさい)で、5月15日に行われます。古くは賀茂祭、または北の祭りとも称し、平安中期の貴族(きぞく)の間では、単に「祭り」と言えば葵祭のことをさすほど有名であったそうです。
