Wakakusa Yamayaki 2017!

Today, the annual Wakakusa Tamaki event took place, where the grass of Nara’s Mount Wakakusayamis set on fire.


This amazing display of fire includes an amazing firework display.


The event takes place each year on the 4th Saturday of January, and involves ceremonies at Todaiji, Kofukuji, and Kasuga shrine.

If you missed this year’s event, then make sure to stop by next year!
