Atago Shrine is an ancient shrine that was established on the summit of Mt. Atago (924 meters above sea level) which overlooks Kyoto. The deity of Mt. Atago is celebrated for the divine favor of fire prevention. This shrine holds an annual event called "Sen-Nichi-Mairi", from the evening of July 31 to the next morning. Bonfire ritual is performed by Yamabushi in the precincts of the shrine late at night. It is believed that if we go to worship at Atago Shrine on that night, the deity of Mt. Atago will protect us from fire disasters for 1,000 days, so we keep vigil and go up Mt. Atago.
