Of Lanterns and Fire

I have been attending quite a few end of summer festivals lately, and the majority of them have involved fire and/or laterns of some kind.  Here are three different photos from three different festivals.

Laterns at the Tanabata Matsuri in Oita City, Oita

Takoyaki Latern at Inukai's local matsuri
