Giant Paper Lanterns Emit a Profound, Impressive Light.

The chochin paper lantern is a traditional Japanese lighting fixture consisting of a bamboo frame covered with paper and a candle at the bottom.
Suwa Shrine in Isshiki, Nishio holds the Ojochin Giant Paper Lantern Festival in late August with giant paper lanterns six to ten meters high.
Their illumination creates a surreal atmosphere. On the day of the festival, the shrine is full of people who come to see the lanterns being set up and the lantern-lighting ceremony at 8:00 PM.
