Nagasaki Lantern Festival長崎ランタンフェスティバル


The Nagasaki Lantern Festival is a winter tradition in Nagasaki. The festival originally started as an event conducted by the residents of Nagasaki's Chinatown to celebrate Chinese New Year. For a 15 day period, some 15,000 Chinese lanterns light up the area around the Chinatown in reds and golds. Various illuminated sculptures big and small are arrayed in the area as well, and the dazzling and whimsical scenery attracts visitors from around the country and the world.

          Nagasaki Main Areas


          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
