The rite is meant to stave off misfortune and ensure peace, longevity and good health.
To finalize the ceremony, the monks at the Fudoji temple in Nagatoro town, Saitama prefecture walk through a path of smoldering embers, followed by worshippers who wish to try fire-walking themselves.
Fire-walking is believed to be possible as red-hot coals have low thermal capacity.
