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).
