Daimonji – Guiding The Spirits To The Next World

Daimonju

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!
