Nachi Biei Fire Festival

Started in 1989, it is a grand festival in which men dressed in white traditional costumes carry burning large torches and parade through the streets at night to the shrine, wishing for the prosperity of Biei Town and the calming of Mt.Tokachi-dake.

In the darkness of the night, men carrying 12 large torches parade through the town to the Biei Shrine, and dedicate the flames of another 12 large torches inside the shrine.

This is a sacred festival where you can feel the power of the flames of the large torches and the excitement of the festival up close.
