Daimonji – Guiding The Spirits To The Next World


As we sat on the banks of the Kamo Gawa last night, another hot one, the air was full of anticipation as locals & tourists alike waited for nightfall.
The giant Kanji symbol was to be lit at 8pm.
The ‘Dai’ is just one of 5 symbols, 100s of meters in size, lit to guide the ancestral spirits back to the world they came from after visiting earth.
To view all 5, you need to be on a restaurant rooftop. I’m booking a table today!
