onomichi akari matsuri

30,000 candles decorate the route up from the water’s edge all the way along the Onomichi Sanzan (3 mountain) Route taking in Senkoji-ji, Saikoku-ji and Jyodo-ji as well as many other temples. Live music adds to the atmosphere and several buddhist treasures, usually locked away, are on public display.

In the event of rain the event will be postponed until the following day.

Unfortunately, the official website is only in Japanese, but you can see photos of the candles in the various temples and a map with suggested routes (also in Japanese) is available here.
