  3. Did you buy some of them in Japan?

    By the way, about your question,
    "大文字焼, Daimonji-yaki" is a fire festival in Japan.
    It is held in several places, Nara,Akita,Kanagawa(Hakone), etc.

    "大" means big, large, or great.
    "文字" means letter(character).
    ( We usually pronounce it "moji" )
    "焼" means burn.

    "大文字焼,Daimonji-yaki" Is a kind of "送り火, Okuri-bi" that is a religious custum of "お盆,Obon".
