Fujiyoshida Fire Festival

The Fuji-Yoshida Fire Festival is celebrated at Fuji Sengen shrine on August 26th, 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 ends.
