As we are heading towards the end of the year, it has also been brought to our attention that there is roughly 15 days left until Shōreisai (松例祭), the largest and probably the most significant festival throughout the year here at Mt. Haguro.
See http://hagurokanko.jp/en/history/fire-festival.html to learn about the festival.
