Fire festival In Otawara

This local Buddhist festival is held at a nearby shrine in October. Complete with fire walkers.  Actually a large number of the people watching also walked the fire.. maybe next year 🙂

On my (translated) maps it is called either Henshoin or Naritasan and I have no idea which is correct, maybe both.

The Kanji are different, so maybe it has two names
遍照院
成田山
