Toyota-City Tankororin Refreshing Candle Night

Date : 08/06/2022 - 08/15/2022

  • Tankororin Refreshing Candle Night (Tankororin no Yusuzumi)

Lanterns and Performances That Bring Out the Feel of the 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 area. The lanterns are made out of Japanese paper and baskets woven from bamboo. Held around the town during this period are mini-performances from such diverse genres as shamisen, guitar, festival music and rakugo storytelling, making an evening stroll even more enjoyable.
This event is part of the larger Asuke Summer Festival & Fireworks (Asuke Natsu Matsuri).
