Daimonji Bonfire

Tonight, I’ve been to see “Dainonji Bonfire“, with guests from Germany. I’ve lived here Kyoto for 2 years, but it was for the first time for me and of course the German guests either. We were really looking forward to seeing this as we saw many posters about “Daimonji” in the city. We saw from the riverside of Kamo River, one of the famous spot to see “Daimonji“. The bus to the spot was really jammed, which also excited us. On 8pm, just 8 o’clock, we found a fire spot on the mountain, and soon that, with applauses, fire spots emerged a lot constituting the figure ““. Then gradually “” became clear and completed. That was really wonderful, beyond description. Why not come to Kyoto 16 August next year?
