Setsubun Mantoro Festival

Be Mystified by the Glowing Lanterns at the Setsubun Mantoro Festival!

A burning lamp or lantern has a special meaning in Japan. The light helps people overcome the darkness of ignorance. One festival in Nara has more than 3,000 lanterns being lit every year. This is known as “Setsubun Mantoro.” At this time, many celebrations are done all over Japanese shrines. flickr.com/ The Background goldenjipangu.com/ February…
