This event was originally due to take place in July but has been rescheduled for September 8th due to a typhoon. In 2019 it will return to it’s original schedule.

The Kihoku Lantern Festival takes place in the port town of Nagashima in Kihoku, Mie Prefecture.

Each year a large, elaborate paper lantern is set afloat on the harbor in the afternoon. After nightfall, there is a spectacular fireworks display known as the Saiun Kujaku (Rainbow Peacock) as a backdrop to the floating lantern.

From 3pm until the fireworks begin at 8pm there are performances and other entertainment on a stage
