Fushimi Manto Nagashi

Traveler Friendly
As it has an impression that this event is for local people, majority of the visitors are locals. The event itself is not too lively but you may enjoy the sacred atmosphere. As there are many Sake breweries in Fushimi, it is great opportunity to drop by this event!

Story & Recommendation
Visionary scenery made of colorful lanterns into the river with prayers
Fushimi Manto Nagashi is a lantern event held in the beginning of August and known as summer tradition of Kyoto Fushimi. This event is taken place to quell the souls of the dead who lost their lives in the battle happened 150 years ago in Kyoto (this battle is called “the battle of Toba and Fushimi”). Nowadays, the prayers for ancestors, good health and safety of the families are put in this event. In this holy event, people will send the lanterns into the river and the colorful and visionary lights surely make you feel calm and peaceful by watching them flowing slowly in the darkness. Since you can send the lanterns into the river by yourself for ¥1,000, it may be a great opportunity to join this event in the calm evening while remembering your ancestors. You can purchase the lanterns in several places in the venue in Fushimi. Although Fushimi Manto Nagashi is taken place towards nightfall, visitors start to gather in the afternoon to enjoy Fushimi area as it is famous for Japanese Sake breweries, Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine (a shrine famous for tons of Torii gates), old buildings of Japanese architecture and more!
