  • The Perahera period went to the beginning. The route of the festival seems to be short. But even if I didn't reserve a seat, I could go to the Temple of Buddha, and i was able to see it while giving in to the localpeople, and the train from Colombo was empty. I was very happy to see the traditional dance sit up close to the festival itself, and the joy that there is so much to be said for the introduction of elephants.

  • The festival, which is said to be the largest festival in Asia, is held in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Many elephants in glittering costumes march in parades for several hours. The roadside will collect a seat by making a viewing seat to a normal house, but if you are healthy, you can see the elephant up close.
