August 2017: Maiko Umehina (Umeno Okiya) of Kamishichiken dancing during Bon Odori.

Bon
Odori is a Buddist holiday celebrated all over Japan around mid-August. However, Kamishichiken is the only hanamachi of Kyoto that participates in it on a large scale. It is celebrated to honor the spirits
of the deceased and people dance to happy folk songs during it.
