SpotYamaga Toro Matsuri (Festival)

A Yamaga Toro lantern is made of Japanese paper and glue. There are 2 types of lanterns: one is a large temple-shaped lantern dedicated to Omiya Shrine, the other is a gold lantern. Women put the gold lantern on their head and elegantly dance all night wearing the same Yukata as one seen in the "Sen-nin Toro" dance at the festival.
