No one is sure of the origins of this fascinating event but each
January, monks and priests oversee the burning of Wakakusa hill,
with over a hundred thousand onlookers watching the fascinating
spectacle. And as if the flames weren't enough to light the skies
there are additional fireworks to make this one of the most
spectacular events on the Japanese calendar.
Event Date: 22 January 2012 Event Time: 5.30pm Venue: Nara Park, Nara
