Obon in Kyoto③Gozan Okuribi

The spirits who came to this world in "THE SPIRIT WELCOME."

spend Obon at each home and go back to the other world by Gozan Okuribi.

On the day, events such as Shoronagashi and Manto-e are held all over Kyoto, creating a fantastic atmosphere.

The okuribi is lit in the order of Daimonji, Myo, Ho, Funagata, Hidari Daimonji and Torii, and there are various viewing points.

Hotel plans that offer a view of all the five mountains sell out quickly, but it's also tasteful to see only one or two mountains.
