This festival began years ago to comfort the spirits of the victims of war, accident or drowning, those who died in disaster like an earthquake, put the lantern to comfort and to make their requests to the spirits.
At first it was just the Lantern Festival, but for about 20 years ago it introduced the release of fireworks.
Many visitors come every year to place their orders by placing the lantern on the lake, coloring the surface of the Yonezu River. A show with over 2 thousand lanterns floating across the river, illuminating the surface and over 3.000 Fantastic explosions in the sky with fireworks.
