Statistics

On July 15, two nights before Kyoto's Gion Festival, 240,000 revelers turned out for Yoiyoiyama. During Yoiyama - the three nights prior to the festival day (July 14 is Yoiyoiyoiyama, the 15th is Yoiyoiyama, and the 16th is Yoiyama) - the famed movable shrines are put on display in central Kyoto. Vehicle traffic is restricted from 6 - 12 pm, and people pour into the center of town to stroll and drink beer and ogle girls in summer yukata robes.
