Paper Lantern Event at Odaiba BeachSince 2004, the Sea Day Lantern Festival has been a cherished tradition, with candles lit in colorful paper lanterns to pray for safety at sea, creating a magical light display at Odaiba Beach.
However, the festival was halted after its 15th iteration in 2018, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, with the pandemic beginning to wind down, the event was held on a smaller scale in 2022.
As the pandemic has come under control, the 2023 Lantern Festival is set to resume at Odaiba Beach. This year, the theme is Enjoying the Seasons of Japan, with paper lanterns creating illustrations on the beach.
