海の灯まつり in お台場2017
Marine Day Lantern Festival

Odaiba, Japan  |  Summer 2017

This event is part of a celebration of Marine Day in Japan. It's a newly made (hah) public holiday to celebrate the ocean. I guess having this sort of festival makes a bit more sense as Odaiba next to the sea, and having lit up candles on the beach feel celebratory and romantic at the same time?

Anyway it's a great little event where people can get involved by lighting up the candles that are previously set up by staff members using the provided hand lighters. I started taking photos just before the golden hour too so they look quite glowy and magical!
