Summary
This program captures the essence of spring in Kyoto. First, the program presents the region's gorgeous displays of cherry blossoms and other flowers at Heian Jingu Shrine, built to commemorate Kyoto's 1,100 years as capital of Japan; in Maruyama Park; by Togetsu Bridge; and at a number of famous temples. Next, traditional seasonal events are profiled, including the Miyako-odori and Kamogawa-odori dances, a Mibu Kyogen performance, a Kyokusui-no-Utage poetry reading, and the Shinko-sai, Aoi, and Mifune festivals. And finally, a sampling of seasonal cuisine-sushi, bean curd, and many other foods, served informally and in Kaiseki style-is highlighted.
