Thunder and lightning are circling now through a blackening sky in preparation for the annual return of the ancestors to this world for their annual three-day visit, a period called Obon. During that time (on the 16th) Okuribi are lit on many of the mountains around Kyoto. One of the characters, Dai, has this history. Be sure to get there early if you want a good view.
