Another event that will color the night sky in summer is the “Gozan no Okuribi” on August 16th.


At first, “Migi-Daimonji”, the right Dai “大” is burned in Higashiyama mountain, after 5 minutes Myou-Hou “妙法” is burned in Matsugasaki, after another 5 minutes “Funa-gata”, the form of the ship is burned in Nishigamo, another 5 minutes later, “Hidari-Daimonji”, the left Dai “大” is burned, and after another 5 minutes “Torii”, the gate of the shrine is burned in Mandara mountain.


The last ignition of the torii shape bonfire can be seen from Arashiyama (scheduled to be ignited at 20:20)

This torii-shaped bonfire can be enjoyed together with Toro Nagashi (Japanese tradition where candle-lit lanterns are released into rivers to guide the spirits of ancestors back to the other world during the Obon season), and it is usually crowded with tourists who want to see both fantastic sights at once ♡


The torii-shaped bonfire viewing spots are near Togetsukyo Bridge and Hirosawa Pond, where you can see the bonfire and the lanterns together ☆

The other hidden viewing spots for torii-shaped bonfire are around Adashino Nenbutsu-ji Temple, north side of Seiryo-ji Temple, Matsuo Bridge, Arashiyama Higashi Park, Horinji Temple, Arashiyama Iwatayama Monkey Park, etc.

Please enjoy it from your favorite place~


Finally, we will be introducing a nice shop that recently opened near Arashiyama.
