Hodogaya Candle Night

3:00pm – 8:00pm
Free

Better known for its cemetery, there is also a large prefectural park in Hodogaya where there will be a celebration for the “last night of summer”.

In and around the Ume-en (plum garden) area of Kanagawa Prefectural Hodogaya Park – described by the organisers as “Hodogaya Forest” – thousands of candles will line the paths. To add to the ambience, there will be chilled, soothing late summer sounds from DJs. In previous years there have been Tsugaru Jamisen performances and fire dancers.

The park is a short bus ride from Hodogaya Station – get off at Hodogaya Yakyujo mae. It might cost you a little to get there from central Tokyo, but entry to the event is free.
