Diwali in Yokohama

Free

200,000 people are expected to celebrate Diwali—the Indian festival of lights—in the festival square area of Yamashita Park in Yokohama. This makes it one of the largest India related festivals in Japan and this year is expected to be even bigger. Celebrating the 150th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, there will be food, music and plenty of entertainment. Along with delicious curries and breads there will be bollywood-style dancing, yoga and lots and lots of candles.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
