Kurama Fire Festival

18:00 - 00:00

Orginating in the late Heian period, this is a festival that conveys the period of time in which the god of rituals departed from the Kyoto Imperial Palace to briefly visit the village of Kurama. Bonfires are burned in various parts of the settlement, and a procession of people walks with swords, ropes of portable mikoshi shrines, and torches. The procession leads towards the mountain gate.
