2.Hiking on the day of the Okuribi bonfires
Entering the hills where the Okuribi are held on August 16 is prohibited for your safety and for the prevention of potential interruption of the bonfire procedures. Furthermore, the trails do not have lights.
Entering the riverbanks may be banned during times of high water levels. Please follow instructions from the security staff on site.
Also, regardless of the water level, you are advised to not enter the riverbanks at night, because the riverbanks are often dark and you may be at risk of accidents such as falling.
