Minami-Kannon Yama(南観音山)

As a legend says, "The Kita Kannon Yama is a man, while the Minami Kannon Yama is a woman. Praying for safety of the next day's parade, the Divinity of the Minami-Kannon Yama practices 'Abare Kannon Gyo (where the Kannon statue is swung like a miniature shrine in the midnight parade)'...
As a legend says, "The Kita Kannon Yama is a man, while the Minami Kannon Yama is a woman. Praying for safety of the next day's parade, the Divinity of the Minami-Kannon Yama practices 'Abare Kannon Gyo (where the Kannon statue is swung like a miniature shrine in the midnight parade)' at midnight on the Gion Festival Eve, Yoiyama."




Thus the Minami-Kannon is also known as "Abare-Kannon". The statutes of Yoryu-Kannon and Zenzai-Doji are placed on the yama float. The Yoryu-Kannon is said the leader of the 33 Buddhist Goddesses of Mercy or Kannon. She transforms herself into a human figure holding a willow branch and relieves suffering people as Yakushi-Kannon does. Wearing a Buddhist surplice, or kesa, on the head, the Yoryu-Kannon sits cross-legged on the yama float.

You will be able to feel the atmosphere of "Gion Matsuri" by above Video provided by YouTube.
