Gozan no Okuribi (五山送り火), more commonly known as Daimonji (大文字), is a festival in Kyoto, Japan. It is the culmination of the O-Bon festival on August 16, in which five giant bonfires are lit on mountains surrounding the city. It signifies the moment when the spirits of deceased family members, who are said to visit this world during O-Bon, are believed to be returning to the spirit world—thus the name Okuribi (送り火) (roughly, "send-off fire").

August 16 is the end of the Obon holiday, when the ancestors visit the living. They are guided on their way by the fires on the mountains around Kyoto. Here people are looking at a fire in the shape of the Chinese character "dai" (big). You can see three of the fires from Ebisu's Kyoto, and you can see the fire in the photo from the top of the hill upon which the house sits (Yoshidayama).
