Bust Into Flames To The Spring Night Sky! 'Otaimatsu' Of Saga Shaka-do, One Of The 3 Biggest Flame Festival In Kyoto


Otaimatsu' had originally divined the good or bad harvest of rice. 7 meters tall three torches come into flames and lighten the spring night sky. You can see it so close as to be showered with sparks!
