This festival is packed with the wintery charms of Nara, including the huge Tateyama illuminations representing the Four Heavenly Kings (Buddhist guardian gods who keep watch over the four cardinal points), the sale of “attaka-mon,” the hot local gourmet food of each municipality in Nara Prefecture, displays of traditional events from each area of the prefecture, lectures about the area’s history and customs, and workshops that allow you to experience the Nara Period (710 to 794).
