【Former Festival Chimaki-juyo of Gion Matsuri brief overview】

Former Festival Chimaki-juyo (ちまき販売日(前祭)) of Gion Matsuri Festival (祇園祭) is usually held during Former Festival Yoiyama from July 14th to July 16th. However, the schedule varies from yamahoko-cho (yamahoko towns), some yamahoko-cho (yamahoko towns) sell from July 13th, the day before Former Festival Yoiyama. In recent years, online sales have also been conducted. Chimaki is sold at the kaisho (meeting hall) in yamahoko-cho and near Yamahoko floats. In addition to Chimaki, some yamahoko-cho (yamahoko towns) also sell original goods such as hand towels. By the way, if you buy Chimaki etc., you may be able to board a large Yamahoko float. However, in some cases, such as Naginata Hoko and Hoka Hoko, women are not allowed to board Yamahoko floats due to the “Nyonin Kinsei” policy. Popular Yamahoko floats. such as Naginata Hoko, may be sold out even during Former Festival Yoiyama period, so it is recommended to purchase Chimaki early. The way to decorate Chimaki is to hang it under the eaves of the entrance of the house, and return the disposal of the old Chimaki to yamahoko-cho (yamahoko towns) or Yasaka Shrine where it was purchased.
Chimaki is sold not only in yamahoko-cho (yamahoko towns) but also at Yasaka Shrine. Yasaka Shrine sells Chimaki, Gion-mamori (mukuge), Gion Matsuri Uchiwa (fan), etc. during Gion Matsuri Festival. (Confirmation required)
