Suitoro Lantern festival

Matsue’s Suitoro lantern festival is an annual event in September whereby the Castle, Castle moat and surroundings are illuminated and decorated with Lanterns. This is the only time you can get a chance to ride on a traditional boat for a tour around the castle moat at night. It is also a great time to take your partner out for a romantic walk.

Here are some pictures of the Lanterns taken around the castle moat.

Looking forward to the appearance of Comet ISON in Winter 2013 (and Comet PANSTARRS in March 2013, too!)
