The Kanji near Hakone is visible on the far hill when taking the ropeway to Owakudani hot springs. Hakone Daimon-ji yaki is one of the biggest traditional summer events of Hakone. A huge fire with a shape of kanji character “大” will appear at the hillside of Mount Meijogatake. There will be also fireworks to be launched on the day in order to live up the atmosphere of the event.
