Virtual Photo Walks, Nara Japan at Mt. Wakakusa "Yamayaki" 

Virtual Photo Walks at Nara Japan with Hiroshi Hayashi and Noriko Nagahori showing a torch is lit with sacred fire at Kasuga Taisha Shrine. This sacred fire is carried down to a small shrine at the foot of the hill by a parade of Buddhist monks. First, the hill is ignited with the sacred fire by members of Kofuku-ji, Todai-ji and Kasuga Taisha. Then 200 fireworks are launched and the hill continues to burn for some 30 minutes. With the fire brigade standing by, there’s no need to worry about the fire spreading. This fire spectacle can be seen from the surrounding towns, but Nara City which faces the hill offers the most beautiful views Virtual Photo Walk is a 501c3 non profit in the USA.
