Fire Ring Festival, Ohinata, Nanmoku Village, Gumma Pref.

14th & 15th August, 2017 | Ohinata, Nanmoku Village, Gumma Pref.  
This is famous for being the largest remaining fire festival in the prefecture. On the Ohinata Bridge, people burn straw on the end of two to three meter ropes and spin them around.

The floating rings of fire create a mystical scene in the darkness.   (*reference: Tourist Guide of GUMMA Prefecture)
