Walking barefoot over hot coals while praying for protection and safety may seem counter-productive but it certainly makes for an impressive spectacle. Taking place on the second Sunday of March at the foot of the beautiful Mt. Takao, this open-air fire ritual attracts worshippers looking to burn away impurities in the flames.
