Welcome To FUJISAN

The Yoshida Fire Festival on August 26thAugust.25,2016

The Yoshida Fire Festival or "Yoshida no Himatsuri" is held every year on August 26th to appease the goddess of Mount Fuji and to keep volcanic eruptions at bay and to celebrate the end of the Mount Fuji climbing season.

For this lively two-day festival celebrated for over 500 years and named one of Japan's three most unique festivals, spectators from across the country and world gather to watch the burning of large "taimatsu" torches and the parade of two large mikoshi (portable shrines) through the streets.
The Fire Festival is one of Fujiyoshida's most prized cultural possessions, and this year's festival promises to live up to its reputation.
