Kyoto's village culture


Fire festival

Fire festival held in late August
Local youths pray and pour fireballs into a circle over 20cm high.

Do this until the fireball enters the circle.

The moment the fireball passes through the ring, a big cheer comes up.
Local people blow whistle and you can see traditional Japanese scenery.

The sense of unity between the thrower, local people and tourists is very  peaceful.
let us cheer together.
