The southernmost fire festival in Honshu

Honshu’s southernmost “lawn burning” takes place at the Observation Tower Lawn, an approximately 100,000 square meter lawn plaza at Shionomisaki Cape in Kushimoto Town. Members of Japanese archery clubs at local high schools shoot a series of lit arrows high into the air, setting the lawn on fire. The dusk highlights the flames, creating mystical scenery that is accompanied by performances of traditional taiko drums.
