Yoshida Fire Festival, August 26~27

Main content starts here.

 

The Fuji-Yoshida Fire Festival is celebrated at Fuji Shingen Shrine on August 26~27, announcing the close of the climbing season of Mt. Fuji. It has been named one of the three most peculiar festivals to still be celebrated in Japan. A torch is kindled at every house-front in Fujiyoshida, and the city is then said to resemble a "sea of fire." Soon after this festival the summer climbing season of Mt. Fuji comes to an end.
