I was also asked the same question by Ota-san, and showed her this newspaper page from the Honolulu Star-Bulletin from February 18, 1969. 


Even without getting the full view, you can see there is an ad for the film showing at the Nippon theater. 

More needs to be done to figure out where else it showed and what happened to the print(s).

> Dear members, 
> The おもちゃ映画ミュージアム in Kyoto is trying to gather information on the theatrical release of 祇園祭 The Day the Sun Rose, aka Gion Festival (Yamanouchi Tetsuya, 1968) outside of Japan. We know that it was shown in USA in February of 1969 (in Hawaii in 1973), but they couldn’t get anything about other parts of the world.
