An evening event in which candle-lit lanterns are floated down the Sumida River. Toro nagashi is a tradition in which lanterns lit with candles are set afloat on rivers to guide the spirits of the ancestors back to the other side during the O-bon holiday.
2,500 lanterns with hand written messages are glided down a gently sloping water slope into the waters on the east side of the Sumida River (the Asakusa Station side – not the Skytree side) between Azuma-bashi bridge and Kototoi-bashi bridge.
