  • Elementary school was heard about the origin of the name of February, but since seeing the shunie was a long-cherished dream. But evening events as seen from Tokyo to go hard and go before going down decades ago. My son was at my age, to Saturday night two days incorporated in the main event of Nara trip. I went to 3/10 on Saturday. 18 when is started. Where's flat in Hill House s February per. Already there was line up there. Was away from the grass takes a spark, a series of events appeared often. Waited for about an hour until the event begins. During the 20-minute, is one of 10 will be moved to February. The darkness watched by many people burning and crackling torch February only burned clothing will take to move the front of the Hall and one year health health is likely to be or the smell, so genuinely want to tour events Is the recommended location not too close too. About away little photo composition is better is like.

Sparks and smoke in the direction of the wind and thank goodness I max! In was happy. Also, I go next year. Want to walk the streets at night, 10 minutes please note.

  • I went by bus from JR NARA station. On weekdays so out of Nara station on the 6 o'clock and time for 10 minutes. There was no problem because everyone was worried that way because it gets dark is walking in the same direction. Flame big torches to move the Hall and stairs was very powerful.
