Over 15,000 colorful lanterns and large art objects adorn the entire city; from Chinatown and Minato Park, to Chuo Park, Meganebashi (Spectacles Bridge), Kanko-dori Arcade in Hamanomachi, and many other locations throughout the city.

Throughout the event period, colorful attractions such as Chinese circus performances, dragon dances, mask-changers, lion dances and more are held at various locations and stages around the city.
