Kyoto Prize banners illustrating Kyoto Prize Logo and Medal are annually arrayed to develop an atmosphere of festivity on the street lamps across 4km north-south stretch of Kyoto’s main road, Karasuma Street from Shiokoji Street near JR Kyoto Station to Marutamachi Street, and along the front street of the Kyoto International Conference Center. They are cordially welcoming the Kyoto Prize laureates and the guests.
