Tama Lantern Festival 2024

Enjoy the beautiful glow of around 200 lanterns

Venue: Tama Hakkaku-do When: Early Oct 2024

There's something special about the glow of lantern festivals, and Japan is home to several of them throughout the year. The Tama Lantern Festival has been running for 5 years now, and it brings around 200 colorful Vietnamese-style lanterns to the Tama Hakkaku-do community center and surrounds.

Along with the beautiful lanterns to appreciate, the event will also include some nostalgic family-friendly games like ring toss, tuk tuk rides (a fee applies), and food booths selling a variety of goodies.
