A Small Isolated Island's Fire Burning Ritual in Japan - Short Documentary (Eng Sub)

Tondo Fire Festival is a traditional event held around the second week of January at different regions in Japan, where a huge bonfire is lit, with flames reaching as high as 5m to 10m, on which used shimekazari (New Year’s decorations), old good luck charms and talismans, and other items on which New Year’s wishes and resolutions were made are burned in prayer for safety and good health for the new year, and apart from it, the event is also characterized by a series of customs and rituals that make it worth attending.This short documentary shows how a small isolated island with only 800 residents continue to celebrate their fire festival as their intangible cultural heritage in which a japanese legend in ancient times is also being honored.

It is located in Onyuujima Island, Saiki City Oita Prefecture Japan.

This has also been featured in "All About Japan" website.
