Fire-Walking Ceremony at Daishōin Temple


It seems Miyajima is known for having hot feet as this takes place only 10 days after the Fire-Walking Ceremony at Daiganji Temple is held.

What happens?

The fire walking is part of a bigger Buddhist ceremony that includes purification, chanting, and shooting arrows. Lastly, cypress branches are set on fire, and once the flames settle down, priests along with worshippers will get to walk across the embers that remain.

The Fire Walking Ceremony in Daishōin Temple takes place on both April 15 and November 15 every year. The ceremony starts at 11 a.m.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
