This Japanese lantern Festival event was so beautiful!!! And they had a show with traditional dancing. The lanterns were really big and luminous. The people were very friendly at the gate. There’s lancers you can step on the light up and photo spots. There’s one lantern you could take a picture with that gives you illusion of you wearing wings. They also have a big gigantic heart for a very romantic picture.
It was well worth the time spent here. There were live shows where people showcased their talents and skills on stage. There was this beautiful show where the artist was effortlessly changing his face from.one colorful face to another, that needed real tact and skill. I was thoroughly intrigued with his performance and waited for about an hour to watch that one more time. Must see! Highly recommended.
