-The Jidai Festival is being held today in Kyoto.
-That festival is one of the three most famous festivals of Kyoto.
However, comparing with the other two, the festival does only gain
a lower reputation among people in Kyoto, because the history of
the festival is rather young and it was started by a leadership
of the government, not of the people.
Many people in Kyoto speak better of this evening's the Kurama
Fire Festival than the Jidai Festival.
-Anyway autumn is the good season to visit the Japanese old
capital, where you can see many colorful festivals.
-I think it is important for us to have festivals or annual events.
They will become good refreshments in our daily life.
