Matsuage Festival

Originating from the fire worship practiced by the Atago faith, this festival is held annually from 20:00-20:30 on August 24th in order to pray that forest fires will not occur in the region. Pine torches are lit and placed in hampers that have been arranged on pillars; these pillars are then knocked down and the rite is concluded. This festival is held at three different locations within Miyama. If you would like to learn more about it, please contact the Miyama DMO.
