Nagasaki Prefecture’s Fantastically Shining Town – Nagasaki Lantern Festival

Revitalize Your Heart with Colorful Lanterns

Approximately 15,000 richly colored lanterns and decorated objects of varying sizes, from big to small, fantastically illuminate and color the town.
Every day during the event period, each venue hosts a variety of shows, including dragon dances, Chinese acrobatics, and erhu performances. This event is fun and popular thanks to its cheerful atmosphere.
The event was originally held by residents of Nagasaki Chinatown to celebrate the lunar new year, but ever since the events scope was broadened as of 1994, it has become an event representative of Nagasaki that sees over 1 million tourists visiting each year.
