"Hyakumangoku Matsui 02" Top 5 Page for this destination Hyakumangoku Matsuri Festival Tip by Mr.Sparkle


The Friday night before the Hyakumangoku Matsui (Mid-June) there is a much more laid back and interesting event called the Floating Lantern parade. At this free event hundreds, if not thousands, of designed paper lanterns are illuminated with a real candle and sent down the river.

Directions: The lantern parade is held at the Asa gawa river, about 5 minutes walk from Kanazawa station.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
