Toyota-City Tankororin Refreshing Candle Night (Tankororin no Yusuzumi)
Date : 08/03/2019 - 08/15/2019
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 area. 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, making an evening stroll even more enjoyable.
This event is part of the larger Asuke Summer Festival & Fireworks (Asuke Natsu Matsuri). Make sure to check out all the other events.
