Kakunodate Hiburi-Kamakura 2023

角館火振りかまくら 2023

■ Schedule

Reiwa , February 14, 2020 18:00-20:00

■ Event details

The Hiburi-Kamakura event in Kakunodate cho, Semboku City City is a magical festival in which splendid rings of fire dance in the snow.
The festival begins with burning firewood in a stove made of snow, then wrapping rice straw around a long tree about 5 meters high and setting it on fire to set up in the snow. I wish you a safe year.
For the hiburi, a 1-meter long rope is attached to a bale of charcoal, and the bale is set on fire from the stove.

And this time around 18:30~19:00 there will be a fireworks display!
*The fireworks to be launched at this event are being carried out using the "Regional Revitalization Extraordinary Grant for New Coronavirus Infectious Diseases".
