It began in the Edo period (1603-1867) when the riverbanks of the Kamo River were crowded with spectators and peddlers, and wealthy merchants set up viewing stands and teahouses. Due to the Great War, the market was once banned, but it has been restored and now has more than 100 locations to spend time in. From early summer to fall, the events are held on the wooden floor laid over the river, where visitors can enjoy a meal while feeling the cool breeze.
