Taimatsu Akashi - fire festival | November 12, Sukagawa-City, Fukushima

The Taimatsu Akashi fire festival has been held in Sukagawa every year for over 420 years.  
Originally a memorial service for warriors from the Samurai era, it has turned into a dramatic event that reminds us a bit of what it must have been like in those feudal days.
