Summer lantern festivals in Tokyo

In summer, when neither fields of flowers, nor colorful autumn leaves, nor Christmas light decorations are around, Japan indulges in a spectacle of night lights, including Hanabi (firework shows) and lantern festivals.

This is a collection of photos taken during two lantern festivals in July 2015: the Mitama Matsuri at the Yasukuni shrine near Kudanshita, and Marine Day on Odaiba beach.
