Japanese - International Festival

Since Japanese culture is so prevalent in Hilo and the surrounding areas, the International Festival recognizes and commemorates the Japanese role in Hawaiian culture. Most of the festivities are located less then 1 mile from Naniloa Volcanoes Resort on Banyan Dr. and in Liliuokalani Park. With an exotic Lantern Parade, authentic foods, craft demonstrations, contests, and live music, this is a celebration not to be missed. The most noteworthy event is the Japanese tea ceremony, called Uraksenke, held at Liliuokalani Park in the Tea House. This genuine tea house is only open a few times during the year and is a must see when accessible. Events are presented throughout the year, with the main celebration occurring in early August. Admission to all events is free.
