Dondo-yaki, an event you burn up new year ornaments has been held in many places around Nagano Prefecture.
Dousojin Festival (Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival) is one of the biggest Dondoyaki Festivals in Japan. And it is also counted as one of the three major fire festivals in Japan.

The trees are cut down in October and brought down from the mountain and through the village on January 13th prior to being made into a huge wooden structure or Shaden. After the shaden has been constructed, the priest from Kosuge shrine performs a ceremony endowing it with a dosojin.
The highlight on January 15th is a “fire-setting battle” which ends up with the setting fire of the Shaden with blazing torches by the offensive team and the offering of torches to the deity, making the festival truly spectacular and exciting.

下雪,地很滑,整個儀式從開始到結束約兩個小時,要有耐性.

野沢温泉の火祭り2020年です。
日本三大火祭りの1つで、全て浄化される様な激しさで燃えます。
是非一度は見て欲しい祭りです!

温泉宿の裏道にひっそりと建立された石碑です。それが祭りとなると、どのように(化学)変化するのか平時には全く想像できません。その分、祭りが楽しみです。

每年的一月十五號會舉行道祖神祭,是日本三大火祭之一,主要參與的人員是厄運年齡四十二歲跟二十五歲的男性。從十三號開始就會有活動了,會從山上拖樹木下山建造祭台,中午一點左右在長板纜車站那邊有機會可以看到。村內如果有生長男的家庭會奉獻“初燈籠”,為小孩祈求健康成長,最後燒祭台的時候這些燈籠也會一起燒掉,場面很壯觀。儀式的過程,四十二歲的人會在祭台上不斷地丟稻草束下去,村民會把稻草束點燃後去燒祭台,二十五歲的人守在祭台下不斷滅火,但其實是不斷地被村民拿燃燒的稻草束打,到儀式後段就會放火燒掉整個祭台,整個祭台被燃燒的時候有種莫名療癒的感覺,非常值得推薦的祭典。晚上很冷,要出來看現場的一定要穿保暖一點,在祭台還沒燒起來前都非常冷,可以在民宿看電視瞭解儀式目前進行到哪了,不需要太早出去,挑喜歡的重點看就好,會場人很多早去當然可以站前面一點,但是要站很久晚上溫度也非常冷,前面的一些致詞、太鼓表演可以在民宿看電視就好,等精彩的部分開始再出門都來得及,不需要太慌張,悠閒的享受祭典即可。
