Legend of the Five Rings: Judgement
Taking place in the last four days of the month of the Horse/Akodo, this is a celebration of Rokugan’s honored dead. The parades for these four days are incredibly fantastic, with representation of the kami, the Dragons, and many ghosts, as well as music, dance, and even fireworks. The last night of the festival is the Toro Nagashi – Lantern Floating. Paper lantern boats are made and inscribed with the names of those who died in the previous year, as well as messages for their spirits. The lanterns are set afloat on a nearby river or the sea, to light the spirits’ way across the River of Stars and into Yomi.
