Uesugi Snow Lantern Festival

Attracted by the lights of the snow lanterns, you will recollect the good old vestiges of Tohoku in the winter

The Uesugi Snow Lantern Festival is held over two day on the second Saturday and Sunday of February every year. Matsugasaki Park, where Uesugi Shrine that enshrines Uesugi Kenshin is located, is the main venue of this festival. It is a festival distinctive of snowy Yonezawa held with gratitude for the ancestors who built the foundations of peace and a wish for the repose of their souls.


The entire area of the main venue of Matsugasaki Park is lined with approximately 300 snow lanterns and approximately 1,000 snow lamps. The flames light up the candles at night. The orange light that shimmers in the white landscape has a warmth that will make you forget the cold. It creates a fantastic atmosphere. If you wish to light a candle in the venue, head over to the handmade candle experience area. Why don't you make an original candle that is just yours and then light it up in a snow lamp.


After your look around, visit the tent village product exhibition. It will be packed with warm foods like Yonezawa skewered beef, Yonezawa ramen and bulbs of konjac jelly! Warm up your body by savoring the piping hot tasty foods of Yonezawa.
