The Lantern Floating on Hirose River is a historical summer festival held in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture.
This festival began as a memorial service to console the victims of the great famine of Tianmi and Tenpo(1833-1835). The lantern float has been handed down for 250 years since then, and the fireworks show began to be held at the same time after WWⅡ.
Numerous colorful lanterns are floating slowly down the river, that view is so fantastic and solemn.
After the lantern float, the fireworks show takes place from 8 pm. About a thousand fireworks are launched into night sky with music.
