Toro-Nagashi (sending off the spirits of the dead on lanterns floated in river) at Kaga Daishouji Temple, Ishikawa

21st July, 2018 | at Kaga Daishouji Temple, Ishikawa
Tōrō nagashi is a Japanese ceremony in which participants float paper lanterns (chōchin) down a river; tōrō is traditionally another word for lantern, while nagashi means "cruise, flow". This is primarily done on the last evening of the Bon Festival festival based on the belief that this guides the spirits of the departed back to the other world.   (*reference: wiki)   official website ››  http://www.hot-ishikawa.jp
