Carried away by light fantasies in a beautiful moonlit night.

Event held in the long nights of the mid-autumn harvest moon. The streets of Yōkaichi-Gokoku are wrapped in a fantastic atmosphere, lit by handmade paper lanterns, which residents hang from the edge of the eaves of every house. The historic townhouses emerging in the light of the lanterns is like watching a movie scene. In addition to the illumination of the garden of the Honhaga family residence, an Important Cultural Property, there are Koto harp performances in some townhouses open to the public. You can also enjoy concerts in the Kamihaga Residenz and eat Tsukimidango moon dumplings, handmade by women of the Preservation Society.

This scenery of endless rows of paper lanterns takes you back in time.
