Summer Night Festival 2019

    Yukata

    Try a casual summer kimono "Yukata" and join the festival. You can choose your favorite one from a variety of colorful yukatas. Not only women's, but also men's and children's yukatas are available.

    Bon dance

    Dance to the rhythm of Japanese drums while slowly going around the "Yagura" (central stage). Anyone can join the dancing circle and follow the movements of dancers.

    Food stalls (ramen)

    Enjoy Hakodate’s famous light salt flavor ramen at a table. It used to be offered at a mobile food stall. SEIRYUKEN Ramen comes back.

    Game stalls (games and toys)

    Children love to enjoy activities at game stalls, such as traditional Japanese festival games, and purchase toys. Yo-yo fishing (you can fish yo-yos with a hook) is very popular.

    Local performing arts

    The performance of Japanese drum group "Hakodate Tomoe Daiko" is very powerful. The sounds of several Japanese drums express the natural beauty of the sea and snow in Hakodate.

    Japanese sake

    Try Japanese sake, which is brewed from rice grains, at a booth in the festival. Sake is sold by the cup so you can taste and compare it from multiple sake breweries.
