Flowers of the Daimonji Festival Bonfire
A dance celebrating summer in Kyoto, characterized by the Gozan no Okuribi (?????), more commonly known as Daimonji-yaki (?????),the culmination of the O-Bon festival on August 16th.
Starting at 8PM, five giant bonfire designs in the shapes of Chinese characters are lit on the mountains that surround the city. The most famous—and the first to be lit—is the character dai (?), meaning "large", on Kyoto's Daimonji-yama (????, daimonjiyama?). The other four fires are lit at ten-minute intervals, and by 8:30, all the characters can be seen. These fires are lit to guide the spirits of the anscestors back to the other world after their breif visitation during Obon, the Festival of the Dead.
The best place to view the festival is from the Nakagyo Ward, in the center of the city. Many hotels have Daimonji specials where, for a fee, you can see all five fires.
Performed by maiko, or apprentice geiko, of Miyagawa-cho.
