Onomichi Lantern Festival

6:00pm – 9:00pm
Free

Onomichi is a world heritage listed town on the Seto Inland Sea in Hiroshima Prefecture made famous in the classic Ozu film Tokyo Story.

Despite the love of things traditional here, the lanterns are rather more contemporary than you will find elsewhere, decorated with colorful pictures.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
