This major summer event uses a local craft of Yanai, goldfish lanterns, as its motif. As many as 4,000 goldfish lanterns are put on display mainly along the streets with white-walled buildings, and events such as “Goldfish Nebuta,” a parade of the lanterns, and “Goldfish Lantern Dance” are held. The goldfish lanterns light up the area at night, and an intense fireworks display signifies the finale of this passionate festival in Yanai. At this time, some of the goldfish lanterns are on display at Tokyo Dome. Enjoy their mystical illumination!
