Date : 01/08/2024
An Impressive Festival Where Lots of Fuku-Daruma Dolls are Burned, Marking the Start of a New Year!
Widely known as "The Daruma Temple of Aichi," Daikoji Temple annually hosts a great festival beseeching a year of safety and health for the community's households. At this festival - that takes place on Japan's holiday of Coming of Age Day (Seijin-no-Hi) - the main attraction is the "Otakiage" event, during which piles and piles of spent Fuku-Daruma Dolls from the previous year are lit on fire and burned in enormous bonfires.
