On a usual year, 200,000 people 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 will be the first in-person event in three years. So, it is expected to be big.
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.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice.
