Higashiyama Hanatoro

Light up in the streets of Kyoto

Venue: Higashiyama When: Early - Mid Mar 2021

In March, Higashiyama is lit up by thousands of lanterns that guide the visitors for an unforgettable night walk through Kyoto’s famous neighborhood.

Our visit coincided with the end of the school year and many girls came in kimono to celebrate their graduation with a trip to Kyoto. The neighborhood is already wonderful during the day and the lanterns added a touch of magic to the place. An unforgettable walk!

Check here for more information and photographs about the Higashiyama Hanatoro.

Thanks, it was really nice. Not the kind of place that I would have found when I lived it Tokyo.

Thank you for your support!
