Toro-nagashi in Arashiyama

My friend sent me the pictures of “Toro-nagashi” in Arashiyama. “Toro-nagashi” is one of the famous Bon events to send the spirits of the dead to their country by flowing the small boats with lantern into the river. She wrote that she was very impressed by its mysterious beauty. I have never been to see “Toro-nagashi” in Arashiyama, even though I have wanted to see it for long. Because I have seen more familiar with “Daimonji Bonfire“, which can be seen in my neighborhood. Next year, I want to go to Arashiyama to see “Toro-nagashi” in the background of “Torii Bonfire“.
