下鴨納涼古本まつり/Secondhand Book Fair at Shimogamo Shrine

8月11日から16日まで下鴨神社糺の森にて、「下鴨納涼古本まつり」と題する古本市が開催されています。10時から17時半まで連日開催中です。(最終日16日は16時で閉場)

A secondhand book fair is held at Tadasunomori, a forest at Shimogamo Shrine from 11th to 16th of August from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. (Note it finishes at 4 PM on the last day Aug 16th)


老若男女問わず多くの方が訪れ、本を探し求めていました。古書から比較的新しい本、ビジネス本や語学書、絵本や子供向けの本など、バラエティ豊かに取り扱いがあります。

Young and old, men and women was visiting here and looking for various books such as classic literature, modern novels, business materials, language learning, picture books and fairy tales for kids.


まちなかにあるオアシスでもあり、糺の森は少し涼しく感じるものですが、それでも暑すぎると感じました。気象庁の発表によると、京都は最高気温が37.7℃だったようです。

Tadasunomori, or a forest in the city there is usually cooler with shade but I felt too hot. In deed, it's announced by the Meteorological Agency that Kyoto recorded 37.7℃ today.


暑くなると水遊びがしたくなりますね。実際、鴨川デルタではたくさんの人が靴を脱いで遊んでいました。

There is only one thing what people want to do in such a hot weather... JUMP INTO A RIVER! You cannot jump in but Kamogawa Delta located at nearby Shimogamo Shirine is a popular place to play in the water.


気温が高いだけでなく、湿度もありますのでお出かけの際は水分補給を忘れずに。

Please bring enough drink and keep hydrated as it is not just hot but also humid.


良い宝物が見つかりますように!

Enjoy treasure hunting!
