Gozan-no-okuribi bonfires is held on August 16th and six giant bonfires are set alight in six mountains surrounding the city of Kyoto. Although there are a number of ways and locations that you can pick from to enjoy the event, I personally prefer to seeing a character with more strokes (such as 妙, 法, etc.) than a simple one (such as 大). I also like to be as close as possible to a character even at the cost of missing to see others and finally found the best viewing spot and character (for me). And, in fact, we can see other characters such as the two 大s and the ship-shaped one from this stadium. The below gallery includes photos from the soccer/football stadium (open to the public for this event) a few minute walk from Matsugasaki station of the subway Karasuma line.
In addition, after six years of trials, the moment of ignition at 妙 character was finally captured!
