Kōda Fire Festival


This festival is held every year on the last Saturday of July. It is one of the three big fire festivals in Japan. Seven large and small “kiriko” lanterns circle around the large torch of about 30 meters. People in the crowd also carry their own torches as well, and swing them in circles. The festival prays for rich fertilization and good harvest in that year – but that all depends on the direction in which the large torch collapses.
