Women of the Ages: Jidai Matsuri (by mboogiedown)
"The festival was first held in  1895 to commemorate the 1,100 year anniversary of Kyoto becoming the  Imperial capital, and to raise Kyoto’s morale after the loss of the  capital and Imperial Court to Tokyo in 1868. The 2,000 participants in  the procession wear period costumes representing styles from throughout  Kyoto’s history, beginning with the modernized soldiers of the Meiji  era, corresponding with the end of the Kyoto capital in 1868, back to  the founding of the capital with characters from the Heian period.
The costumes, authentic even in their traditional production, are valued at over $25 million.”
