Lake Towada Sky Lantern Festival

July 15, 2023 - July 16, 2023


Event Navigation

For more than half a century, the Sky Lantern Festival at Lake Towada in Aomori has been a spectacular sight to behold, lighting up the summer nights with around 2000 LED-powered lanterns. The entry cost for a pair of attendees is 3000 yen, and this includes a single sky lantern. The beautiful glow of the lanterns reflecting off the lake’s calm waters is further enhanced by a fireworks display at the conclusion of each evening’s events.

During the festival, visitors have the opportunity to enjoy a unique view of the lit lanterns and the fireworks from the lake itself. Boat tours are available, each lasting about 50 minutes. The price for these tours is 2,000 yen for adults and 1,000 yen for students in elementary school.

How to reach the festival

Lake Towada can be reached by bus from Hachinohe Station; the journey typically lasts around 2 hours and 15 minutes. Please note that the bus service operates only a few times per day, so it’s crucial to schedule your trip carefully.

For those who prefer to drive, multiple parking areas are available on-site.
