Hakone Gora Summer Festival Daimonji-yaki
This annual summer festival in the Gora Onsen (hot spring) area has been held during the Obon festival period in August since 1921. The highlight is a magnificent collaboration of fireworks and Daimonji-yaki (giant bonfires in the shape of Chinese character "large") lit on Mt. Myojogatake. Enjoying the performance while bathing in a hot spring is an experience not to be missed!
