Kyoto・Gozan-no-okuribi 2014

On 16th August, Gozan-no-okuribi is well known as the event as end of the summer season. Gozan-no-okuribi means “bonfire on 5 mountains”, each mountain has different formed bonfire such as a letter or a mark.

Most famous mountain among them is “Higashiyama nyoi ga dake” which has “大(large)” on it. Matsugasaki-nishiyama mountain is “妙(wonderful)”, Matsugasaki-higashiyama mountain is “法(method)”, Nishigamo-huneyama mountain is a shape of a boat. Okitayama mountain is also “大”, Sagasenouji mountain is a shape of a gate.

There used to be some more such as “い(i)” at Ichiharano, “一(one)” at Narutaki, a bell on a bamboo is at Nishiyama mountain, a snake is at Kitasaga, a shape of a long handled sword is at Kannonji village, but the custom is already disappeared. There are a lot of stories about history of this tradition, however none of them can proof the fact.

Making bonfire is to send our ancestors back to afterworld. This became poplar after Buddhism was civilized and became poplar which would be in the middle age. In the old book in 1603, gozan-no-okuribi is already mentioned.

Each mountain has histories and none of them are fully proved if it is true. It because may be this tradition hand over by locals not person in power back then, or the events would have recorded.

Nowadays, Gozan-no-okuribi event still hand over by local groups, volunteers, to keep hundreds years tradition.

京都・五山送り火 2014

8月16日夜、夏の夜空にくっきりと浮かび上がる、「五山の送り火」は京の夏の終わりを告げる風物詩として全国的にも有名です。

送り火の前につく、「五山」は東山如意ヶ嶽の「大文字」がもっともよく知られ、ほかに松ヶ崎西山・東山の「妙・法」、西賀茂船山の「船形」、金閣寺付近大北山(大文字山)の「左大文字」及び嵯峨仙翁寺山(万灯籠山・曼荼羅山)の「鳥居形」の五つを指します。

送り火そのものは、再び冥府(冥府・死後の世界)に帰る精霊を送るという意味をもつ盆行事の一形態で、この行事が一般に広く行われるようになったのは、仏教が庶民の間に深く浸透した中世−室町時代以降であるといわれています.
