Floating lantern ceremony
19:00–20:00・Jul 29, 2022–Jul 30, 2022・Chidorigafuchi Boat Parking

The Chiyoda Floating Lantern Evening will take place at one of the most scenic locations in Tokyo for the first time in three years. The ceremony first began in 1958 as a way to soothe the pain of those devastated by the war. The event is free to watch, but visitors can purchase a paper lantern from the nearby Chidorigafuchi Boathouse from 5pm to 7pm for ¥1,000 and write a message of hope on them. It is recommended to pre-order them before the event via their website since the number of lanterns is limited to 2,000. Those unable to attend the event in-person can purchase any of three lantern designs from the Floating Lantern Special Message service from anywhere around the world. They will be released on the moat by a member of the Chiyoda Tourist Association.
