Mt. Wakakusa Yamayaki


This festival is held every year on the fourth Saturday of January. It features a traditional event that originated in order to announce the coming of early spring to the ancient city of Nara. The entire mountain is burned and the spectacle of the burning in the night sky is quite a sight. The large fireworks just before the mountain base dye the clear winter night sky with vivid light and color.
