前日より若干 涼しく感じる今宵、雨の予報も振り切って、今年も無事に五山送り火が灯りました。 徐々に消えゆく様は 儚げです。

Gozan no Okuribi, more commonly known as Daimonji, is a festival in Kyoto, Japan. It is the culmination of the Obon festival on August 16, in which five giant bonfires are lit on mountains surrounding the city. It signifies the moment when the spirits of deceased family members, who are said to visit this world during O-Bon, are believed to be returning to the spirit world.
