Mitama Matsuri

As part of Japan’s obon celebrations, the festivities at Yasukuni Shrine are some of the biggest in the country. Each evening 30,000 lanterns light the way to the shrine and over 300,000 visitors flock to see this spectacular sight. There is also a wide selection of festival stalls and foods available as well as stage area for taiko drumming and traditional Japanese performances. You need to brave the crowds for this one, but the atmosphere and the view are well worth it.
