Matsuri in the form of chanting is still remaining as in the form kigansai (individual petition to the jinja or shrine to pray and jichinsai (ceremony prior to the establishment of a building or construction). Reading Shinto priest performed the prayer for individuals or groups of people in places that are not seen anyone else an early form of the matsuri. At this time, Ise Jingu is one example of the Shinto shrines are still
matsuri held in the form of chanting that are exclusive for a limited circle of participants and the public are not allowed to participate.

In accordance with the times, the objectives of the matsuri often strayed far from the actual intentions matsuri. Implementation of matsuri often be the only goal dilangsungkannya matsuri, matsuri whereas only a discourse, and without religious meaning.

Jidai Matsuri: The History of Walking Backward
 written in Osaka, December 2006

Learning from the past is a wise beginning to move toward the future, and tells the history of the past into the present generation means instilling and foster pride in identity and the identity of his nation.

From day to day the weather was getting cold in Japan. Soon autumn will change to winter. The period of transition as the weather gets cold does not mean to make city life more and more deserted. October 2006, in the late autumn, Kyoto, one of the important cities in all the maps become one of Japan's development center at the end of this fall. Since morning, I had one foot in front of the hostel to the train station nearest-Minami Senri (osaka) to go Kawaramachi Station (Kyoto). Unlike the day before, today's increasingly close to the train station Kawaramachi, the more vibrant atmosphere on the train anyway. Fathers and mothers who participate bring their children, spouses grandparents, young people, one group of students and of course the tourists from outside japan mostly seen moving toward the northern city of Kyoto.

Today -22 October 2006 - will take place in Kyoto Jidai Matsuri (Festival of Travel Time), which is one of the three major festivals in addition to Aoi Matsuri and Gion Matsuri, which is held every year in this historic old town. Jidai Matsuri began to be held since the year 1895 to commemorate 1100 years of relocation of the capital to Kyoto in 794, and raising the moral community that feared Kyoto decreased after the imperial capital and moved to Tokyo. From year to year the festival procession is growing, from just 6 procession with about 500 people up to 18 procession with nearly 2000 participants.

This festival begins the journey from Kyoto Imperial Garden and ends at Heian Shrine. Approximately 4.5 km along this, tens of thousands of eyes will watch the parade along almost 2km. Rows are called Jidai Gyoretsu Jidai Matsuri is the core of this. Costumes used in this Gyoretsu Jidai was the one who describes the history of the city of Kyoto, where each period starts from the end of the capital of Kyoto, who moved to Tokyo in 1868 (Meiji era) runs backward to the beginning of the functioning of Kyoto as the capital in the year 794 (Heian era ), represented by a group of people with clothing styles of the period. To achieve the goal of this festival, some historical objects as well as other appliances such as clothes, sandals, accessories, accessories to be reproduced again based on the research and knowledge about the period. Even to actually be able to provide a complete picture then not only shape the material being reproduced but also cultivated the same as those used in each period, so what will be witnessed by an audience is not just an accompaniment costumed procession parades but also differences, uniqueness and atmosphere from each of its period.

Promptly at 12 noon parade will start from the Kyoto Imperial Palace and the page will go through several streets like Marutamachi-dori, Karasuma-dori, Oike-dori until ending at the Heian Jingu (Heian shrine). As part of a tour event, the committee provides a special area that can be booked in advance. With the cost of 2000 yen, specific areas are equipped with seating and provides an opportunity to participate in this festival with more comfort. But for the people and tourists who choose not to buy the place can still see the festival through some point of crossroads and on some streets that are not equipped with a special area bertiket audience, such as in Marutamachi-dori, Karasuma-dori, or Sanjo- dori. Clock is still showing at 11.00, some viewers who hold tickets have started to arrive and occupy the seats provided, because the faster means greater opportunity to get front row seats with unobstructed views. The same is done by the general public and tourists, some began to occupy sites that are considered to give the best view, some began to mark territory by placing chairs, bags and other items at specific locations. But many are taking the time to first witness the beauty of architecture Heian Jingu (shrine), or if lucky chance to see the funny thing is the children who were celebrating Shichi-go-san, or also look at the collection exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art and Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art.

At approximately 14:30, organizers assisted by police began to close the roads that intersect with the parade route and a sign that the party parade will begin through the tori (gate) which are more or less a giant 200m south of Heian Jingu. Wide road approximately 12 meters immediately became very quiet and clear of vehicles and people. One group consists of about 40 people mothers berkimono blue and white bring a welcome dance troupe and at the same festival parade started this journey into Heaian Jingu. Not long after one by one group started passing parade. The group that describes the knights and the royal troops in the era of the Meiji Restoration was the first pass, then followed by a group representing the Edo Period and beyond. What is shown through this festival is really trying to revive the atmosphere of each era, so not only clothing of the nobility, or the royal army uniform when it is raised, but also clothes that depict ordinary people's lives everyday. Rows of Japanese women who represent the Kamakura and Muromachi Period-for example, consists of several people who provide illustrations of women who live in rural areas east and west of Kyoto. There is also a group that describes implementation of the ceremonies, such as Zen-Retsu and Shinko-Retsu (holy procession to train) and Hanagyoretsu (procession of women carrying flowers). The other part you want to show the festival is important characters in the history of Kyoto, such as Princess Kazuno-Miya and Izumi-no-Okuni (Kabuki founder) of the Edo Period, and Tokiwa-Gozen ("Lady Tokiwa", wife of army generals Genji force) of the Heian Period.

Kyusen-gumi (Force Archer) to cover a long line of festival history of this city of Kyoto. A festival is not just being entertainment for the Kyoto and tourists but also a "museum walk" to enrich insight and love for tourists and citizens of this city.
