An epic festival with a wild dance of ogres and torches

In this epic festival on the Saturday closest to the seventh day of the year in the lunar calendar, participants carry 30-some torches into the main hall of Takisanji Temple, one of the nation's important cultural properties, and perform a wild dance. With dozens of people bearing large torches following them as though in a wild dance, ogres wearing grandfather, grandmother and grandchild masks said to have been made by Unkei appear amid the fiercely burning flames and grant peace in the land and an abundant harvest.
