Travel | Wakakusa Yamayaki 若草山焼き

Every year, at the end of January, a complete mountain in Nara is being set on fire.
This has been a tradition for hundreds of years and its origins are said to lie in a disagreement over the boundaries of Kofuku-ji Temple and Todai-ji Temple.
Nowadays, it has turned into a festival and before the mountain is set on fire there is entertainment and gorgeous fireworks.

These lovely pictures were made by my boyfriend :)
