The Japanese Star Festival known locally as Tanabata is now being celebrated in Kyoto.
Until August 12th there will be artistic illumination representing the Milky Way every evening.
Between Oike Bridge and Shijo Bridge on the Misosogi River - the narrow canal that abuts the restaurants on Kiyamachi and sits between the pedestrian walkway and the Kamo River - 100 LED bulbs will be set up.
The illumination will be lit every night between 7 and 9 pm.
For those going on bike, parking is available on Oike.
