Higashiyama Lantern Festival 2015 (Higashiyama Hanatoro)

This year's Lantern Festival in Higashiyama Area is starting from March 6th finishing on March 15th:) You could enjoy old paths with beautiful lanterns, Japanese flower arrangements and some events happening especially on weekends.

Time: 6pm-21:30
Map and  details:

From Kyoto HanaHostel or J-hoppers, you could take city bus 206 or 100 and youcan get off
at some point where you want to start:)

But starting from Gojozaka (五条坂) would enable you to have a look of every festival place as well as sightseeing spots like Kiyomizu Temple清水寺, Kodaiji Tepmple 高台寺 and many more related areas:)

What most took my interest is sand art projection event at Chionin Temple 知恩院.
It seems the art group "SILT" will project the images of their sand art on the huge temple gate.
Must worth visiting:)

Time (3 times a night): 18:30~ 19:30~.20:30~

You could check their works from here:

Have fun!
