If you are in Kyoto during the O-bon season, be sure to celebrate the return of the spirits and ancestors of the other world with the Japanese locals. Every year, five bonfires are lit up in the city’s surrounding mountains. The bonfires are meant to lead the spirits and deceased family members back to their families for the day. Witness the reunion of families from the other world and sit back to enjoy the fire spectacle for the evening.
