The Asuke summer festival refers to a series of events that take place in summer throughout the Asuke region. Every August, the promenade along the banks of the Asukegawa River is lit up with candles for the Asukegawa Manto Festival. See also the fireworks festival held in Asuke-cho, and, on the last day, lanterns are sent off into the Tomoegawa River and the Jizo Festival is held. There are also fireworks and the Bon dance to see. During the event, from sunset to about 9:00 PM, Tankororin lanterns, which are cilyndrical and made out of bamboo baskets and Washi Japanese paper, illuminate the streets of Asuke.
