Nagasaki Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival

START: Sep 8, 2023 END: Oct 3, 2023

One of China’s three major festivals, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a cherished occasion for observing the full moon and spending quality time with family. It’s traditionally marked by enjoying mooncakes—sweet buns filled with bean paste. In line with this festive spirit, Nagasaki’s vibrant Chinatown comes alive with soft, yellow, round lanterns mimicking the moon, casting a gentle glow over the streets during this period.

A select number of shops also offer special moon-viewing sets, featuring limited-time dishes and treats to honor the festival. Immerse yourself in the exotic atmosphere of this historic Chinese enclave and experience an enchanting evening under the moonlight. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival in a uniquely Japanese setting with rich Chinese influences.
