Hifuri Shinji is a Shinto ritual which held at Aso Shrine. That has a history of about 2,300 years. To celebrate God’s marriage, people greet the marriage of God by waving a torch in front of the gate.
When the torch is lit and shaken, several rings of flames appear in front of Shrine and a fantastic sight spreads. There is special Hifuri for tourists which you can participate in.
This shrine is also known as a power spot for marriage because it worships God’s couple.
Recommended for those who want to experience the Fire Festival in a sacred atmosphere, or for those who want to share a special experience with their loved ones.
