This summer festival in Ueno takes place over five weeks and features a different event every day, from a toro-nagashi (paper-lantern floating) ceremony to ice-sculpture displays. About halfway around Shinobazu-no-ike Pond extends an antiques market, which always attracts a crowd. By the pond, you can take a break from the festivities by, perhaps, gazing at the lotus flowers and feeling the summer breeze. Additionally, why not enjoy some music and folk entertainment performances at the Waterfront Music Hall (Suijo-Ongakudo)?
