Lanterns and performances that bring out the feel of old streets

From the beginning to the middle of August cylindrical andon lanterns called "tankororin" are lit here and there around the atmospheric old streets of Toyota City's Asuke-cho. The lanterns are made out of Japanese paper and baskets woven from bamboo. Here and there around the town during this period there are mini-performances from such diverse genres as shamisen, guitar, festival music and rakugo storytelling, so an evening stroll will be even more enjoyable.
This event is part of the larger Asuke Summer Festival & Fireworks (Asuke Natsu Matsuri). Make sure to check all the other events.
