Hakata Toumyou lantern art festival!

Last Saturday, we went to see Hakata toumyou lantern art festival.

It is a festival of lantern lighting up at the various area in Hakata. This year’s festival was bigger than before.  We could see lantern arts at many places like Kushida shrine, Touchouji, Shoutenji, Bayside place, and elementary school in Hakata.

We walked around Hakata area.


It was really pretty. We all enjoyed looking around temples and lantern arts. Yes, we could get in to the temple which is not open to public. That was cool.

Also, we could see people wearing kimono and geisha make-up parading on the street.


Would you like try on Kimono and make-up???
