Tondabayashi Jinaimachi Toro is a summer tradition of Tondabayashi where about 1000 lanterns illuminate the old town and create a fantastic scenery.

Local people seem to come with their families.

There were many people wearing yukata. It feels cool for some reason.

It was crowded with people enjoying food from stalls and playing games.
