#10 Spring Festival/春节祭

Spring Festival/春节祭

One of the biggest Chinatowns is in Nagasaki City, located in the west of Kyushu. Nagasaki has prospered as an international port city since 1571. Chinese immigrants have also lived here in Nagasaki for quite a long time. That’s why, when the Chinese New Year comes, they hold a big festival to celebrate the coming new year with local people by lighting up over thousands of Chinese lanterns.
This tradition has become an official one since 1994, and over 1 million people come to this festival from all over the world in 14 days.

日本で最も大きな中華街がある長崎県。1571年から先駆けて国際的な港町として発展し始めたときから、中国からの移民が多く長崎に住んでいた。そのため、毎年旧正月の時期になると、人々は旧正月を祝うため、まち全体が観光客や中国人で賑わう。「長崎ランタンフェスティバル」は1994年に正式な街のイベントとなり、世界中から毎年100万人近くの人たちが訪れます。その様子をカメラに収めました。
