Toro Nagashi is a summer tradition in which people make wishes and float paper lanterns down a river. In Asakusa, this takes place at Sumida Park, where lanterns are released from Shinsui Terrace, near Azumabashi Bridge. You can also buy your own lantern from the Asakusa Tourist Federation.
Be soothed by the beauty of paper lanterns floating along the tranquil Sumidagawa River.
