“The 17th Iiyama Lantern Festival” will be held on 11 August this year.
The festival was listed as Night View Heritage of Japan, light up department, in August 2016.
10,000 of handmade lanterns, made by Uchiyama-gami, a traditional craft in Iiyama area, light up the twilight town fantastically.
You can find food stands (Yatai) and enjoy some events like dance performance at the venue this year!
Iiyama Station is also going to be decorated with lanterns by local high school students, hoping for the future and wishing for the world peace, as one of a work of Kizuna project since 5-20 August.
