Asakusa Toro Nagashi

One of Japan’s summer symbols is the soothing beauty of softly glowing paper lanterns floating along the Sumida river at dusk. Participants decorate their lanterns, then send them off as they make a wish. Lanterns are available to buy at the venue on the day, but expect long lines. For those who would like to purchase their own lantern in advance, please contact the Asakusa Tourist Federation.
