Title:

Oniyo Matsuri (Fire Festival), Kurume, Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan.

Caption:

Men dressed in loincloths at the Oniyo fire festival carry the one-ton taimatsu torches seven times around the temple. It isn't an easy task. The leader (wearing a red headband) must coordinate well all their efforts to lift the mammoth shafts using long oak poles.
