Kyoto's autumn fire festival excites revelers

The annual autumn fire festival in Kurama in the mountains of northern Kyoto excites festivalgoers. In the festival, known as ''Kurama-no-Himatsuri,'' thousands of torches are carried or placed at the side of the road leading up to the Yuki Shrine. Revelers shout in unison, ''Come take part in this Shinto ritual.'' The festival, sponsored by the shrine, dates back to the 10th century.
