Natsuyama Hachimangu Fire Festival

13:00 - 20:00

This festival is held every year on the Sunday that is the closest to September 9th of the Lunar New Year Calendar. In this lively fire festival that dates back 1500 years, participants light a giant bonfire and gather around it in a circle. Five people are chosen to play the role of demons, which they do one at a time by wearing a mask and carrying a long stick. The demon then chases people in circles around the bonfire, and it is said that if you get hit by the stick, then you will not get sick for an entire year.
