Dondoyaki Fire Burning

With 2015 now underway, it’s time to bring down those Christmas and New Year’s decorations. But wait – don’t just chuck them in the trash, your neighbours might give you a disapproving look! Festive decorations should be burned at dondoyaki; a customary New Year’s event usually held in mid January. People bring together last year’s good luck charms and New Year’s decorations, and burn them in a bonfire at a shrine or local park to wish for good health and success for the year. Here’s a list of places in Fukuoka City where you can join the festivity.
