✨Nagatoro is a wonderful place to visit year round, but you really don’t want to miss the 🎆Nagatoro Funadama Festival🎆!!
This extraordinary 💦river festival takes place every August, inviting visitors to experience the 😍beauty of Mother Nature.
First thing first, find a 😊nice spot on the Nationally-designated natural monument named “Iwadatami,” a massive rock terrace on the 💦Arakawa River. Get some delightful 🍡street food and watch the festive water floats and lanterns bearing people’s 🙏prayers for maritime safety.
When the ✨floats and lanterns drift away in the river, 🎆3500 stunning fireworks are launched into the vast evening sky, taking your breath away.😮
