Yumura Fire Festival

It is the text from here.

Yumura Hot Spring gushes with geothermal waters at a scalding 98°C. Even in Japan, hot springs of such extremely high temperatures are rare. This festival takes place along the Harukigawa River, which flows through the center of Yumura hot-spring resort. Children cry out joyously as they twirl their torches. The purpose of this festival is to ward off misfortune. The flames dancing in the dark night are a magical sight.
