During this fire festival the monks of Tōdai-ji parade huge, flaming torches around the balcony of Nigatsu-dō for 10 nights straight, raining embers on spectators to purify them. On the following day they draw water from the temple well and at 2am (early on the final day) offer it to Kannon (the Buddhist goddess of mercy) and the public.
