The Nagoya Castle’s Yoi Festival comes as close to evoking the lantern lit summer nights depicted in so many woodblock prints. The castle grounds are festively lit with hundreds of paper lanterns and people show up in their summer yukata. Festivities include street performers, stage concerts and bon-odori dancing. There is a beer garden along with loads of stalls purveying food, games, toys and more.
