Nagasaki Lantern Festival

Begun as a celebration of the Chinese New Year primarily by the Chinese merchants resident in Nagasaki, the Nagasaki Lantern Festival has become a staple winter event in the city, and the largest of its kind in all of Japan.

Over 15,000 colorful lanterns and large art objects adorn the entire city; from Chinatown and Minato Park, to Chuo Park, Meganebashi, Kanko-dori Arcade in Hamanomachi, and many other locations throughout the city. Chinese circus performances and dragon dancing add to the excitement.
