Overview
More
The major summer event held every year on a Saturday and Sunday in late July in Odawara, a city which flourished as a post town on the Tokaido highway. Various festivities are held around the common theme of the Odawara paper lanterns, made to be easy for travelers to carry. The main highlight is the aquatic art fair. Roughly 2,000 paper lanterns made by local elementary school students light up the Odawara Castle moat with color. Events are held on both days, including a paper lantern dance competition, a taiko drum performance, a mikoshi (portable shrine) parade, and more, and many food carts are set up on the grounds.
