SpotToro-nagashi

The Toro-nagashi (floating lantern) festival is held on Hirosawa-no-Ike pond at 7pm on the same day (August 16th). Red, white, yellow, blue and purple lanterns are floated in the pond. Unlike a lantern floating festival that is held in a river, here the lanterns are carried to the center of the pond by Japanese boats and floated from the boats. The lanterns are slowly scattered over the water and create an ethereal atmosphere. Hirosawa-no-ike is a good location to enjoy the Torii-gata bonfire and the lantern floating event.
