On a balmy mid-July evening, you'll find the moat of the Imperial Palace illuminated with twinkling lanterns. Swaying on the gentle waves created by paddlers in boats as they bob along the water surface, this romantic scene is the Chiyoda-ku Noryo no Yube—the Lantern Floating Event.
The number of rowing boats is restricted, and the reservation process involves applying by postcard weeks before the event.
