This month’s photo is of the Nachi Fire Festival (Nachi-no-Ogi-Matsuri), which is held on July 14 in the Kumano Mountains of Wakayama Prefecture. This area is registered as a World Heritage Site. The festival features 12 blazing pine torches that are carried to the base of the Nachi Waterfall in order to purify 12 portable shrines which are decorated with ogi fans and mirrors. Viewers will be entertained by the vigorous and dynamic ritual. ©Wakayama Pref.
