    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. On the last day, lanterns are sent off into the Tomoegawa River and the Jizo Festival is held. There are also fireworks in Asuke-cho and the Bon dance to see. During the event, from sunset to about 9:00 PM, Tankororin lanterns, which are cylindrical and made out of bamboo baskets and washi, Japanese paper, illuminate the streets of Asuke.
