Takikawa Lantern Festival
In late February, the Lantern festival lights up the streets for a night with over 10,000 paper lanterns made by citizens of Takikawa.
The event was organised by Igarashi Takenobu, an artist born in Takikawa with the goal of giving people the joy of crafting their own piece of artwork. It is easy to make a paper lantern and a delightful experience to see your artwork lit up among the many others. All you need is some imagination, a paper bag and a cutter which is provided absolutely free! So come join us and light up your imagination!
* The date for the festival varies each year. Please check with us for more information.
