Like many of Japan’s towns and cities, Nagatoro loves festivals and numerous celebrations take place throughout the year.

Other highlights on the yearly calendar include the Nagatoro Fire Festival and the Daruma Ichi (“Daruma Doll Festival”). Also worth visiting is the summer Funadama Festival when around 1,000 lanterns float down the Arakawa River and fireworks are released from the bank opposite Nagatoro Iwadatami.
