The last of the annual summer festivals of the Fuji Five Lakes area, this ritual, which is said to purify and wash away all evil, originates from Kawaguchi Sengen Shrine, and consists of sending out several hundred lanterns to float in small boats over the lake. The main ceremony is preceded by an afternoon concert, while over 5,000 fireworks bring the festival to a close as they light up the summer sky.
