Evenings at Yume – Floating Lanterns (Toro Nagashi)

SUPPORT

The term “toro” refers to lanterns, and “nagashi” means flowing or floating. This practice is often associated with various cultural and religious events, particularly during Obon, a Japanese Buddhist custom to commemorate deceased ancestors’ spirits. This poignant and spiritual practice fosters a sense of deep connection between the living and the dead. It’s a way for people to express their love and respect for those who have passed away while also finding solace in the belief that their spirits continue their journey.

Purchase a floating lantern at the door, and launch it on our sparkling koi pond to participate in this ancient and symbolic Japanese tradition without ever leaving Tucson.

Before launching the lanterns, participants may write messages, prayers, or the names of deceased loved ones on the lanterns.

Enjoy this floating procession of lanterns and relax to the sound of Japanese folk music playing softly in the background.
