Yasugi Kiyomizu-dera Temple Lantern Festival is a light-up event taking place at Yasugi Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Yasugi City. The small lanterns placed on the approach are made by local elementary students, while lanterns placed in the precincts are made with local traditional hand-made washi Japanese paper and locally made indigo-dyed fabrics. Enjoy the beautiful relaxing night and local specialties at this temple lit by the tender lights of lanterns.
