Day 154: Today was Daimonji 大文字 Festival in Kyoto, a day that celebrates the end of Obon Festival, during which it is said that the spirits of family members are visiting this world. Five giant bonfires are lit on the mountains surrounding Kyoto and this is the one closest to where I live. 
It's the "dai 大" kanji, which means "big". But the important thing here is: did you know that this festival was the idea for the "Fire Blast" Pokemon move? 😜 Its Japanese name is in fact "Daimonji" and it basically consists of Pokemon shooting Dai 大 shaped flames from their mouth.
