Some Like It Hotter Still

Ken Belson, writing for The New York Times, had a fairly decent article on Takaozan this week.

However, he missed the big story of the weekend--that the yamabushi of Takaozan have their annual fire walk this Sunday (March 11, at 13:00).

A Mr. Wada Yoshio, a man with a seriously finer camera than mine, has a site with several pages of super photos of last year's festival.

A good thing to go take a gander at on Sunday, if the weather cooperates.
