Kiyomizu Temple & Surroundings, Kyoto

According to one of the legends of Kiyomizu Temple, a blue dragon (Seiryu), an incarnation of Kannon, flies to drink from the waterfall every night. At this event, with an 18-meter-long figure of the blue dragon leading the way, a variety of performers featuring elaborate costumes parade through the grounds and the surrounding temple town, praying for peace and expelling bad luck.
