I participated in fire fighting group activities at a local primary school.That’s because of the event “Dondo-yaki”.
Local residents and elementary schools are working together as part of extracurricular activities for children.
‘dondo-yaki’ is one of the New Year events.
It is hope that there will be no illness and that disaster will not come.
I thank the amulet decorated last year and burn it.
There is a god of stone in the fire.
We bake dango and mochi with the remaining fire and eat it.
Dango is a popular food to give to God.
This time I did ”yaki-imo”.Yaki-imo means sweet potato.
Tonjiru means miso soup with pork and vegetables.
It was a cold day despite a snowfall, but a lot of elementary school students were crowded.
Turn off the fire and it is over.If you live in Japan, Won’t you join us ?
