First held in 1946, Toro Nagashi (literally, “flowing lanterns”) is a Japanese ceremony in which participants float glowing paper lanterns down a river to commemorate souls of dead. Typically observed during a three-day Buddhist festival, Toro Nagashi is meant to be more of a joyful celebration than a time of mourning. Design and launch your own lantern filled with hopes, dreams, or letters to loved ones and send it with over 1000 other lanterns to drift in water. Plus: food trucks and music.
