Daimonji is a popular festival in Kyoto, Japan. The culmination of the O-Bon festival, in which five giant bonfires are lit on mountains surrounding the city. It signifies the moment when spirits of deceased family members, who are said to visit this world during O-Bon, are believed to be returning to the spirit world. Starting at 8PM, the giant bonfires are lit, each with a distinctive shape. The most famous, and the first to be lit, is the character dai (Се) on Kyoto's Daimonji-yama.
This Japanese Kimono celebrates the symbolic festival. Set on a rich purple background representing the evening sky, the mountains are ablaze with the burning dai character representing the end of summer.
