In the centre of the action

Look what took place right out side THE J TEAM’s West Japan office (Kyoto) this morning! It is the Gion Festival parade, one of the greatest festivals in Japan and now registered by UNESCO as an intangible heritage of humanity.

And this is what it looked like last night as the pre-festival festivities called “Yoiyama” took place.

THE J TEAM moved into this office one year ago to be in the centre of all things Japanese culture. See how the move went in the blog post from summer 2013.
