Kira Kira Festival in SASEBO from November 17th (Thu) to January 9th (Mon)


At the Shimanose Park in Sasebo city, Nagasaki prefecture will hold an illumination festival which will consist of more than 1 million light bulbs.

The sight of the illuminated city was said to be similar to the canvas on the wall of the Shimanose Art Center (37m long x 27m wide). The canvas represents the image of the people of Sasebo of what the city illuminated would look like before the event.

During the period of the festival, there will also be a Christmas market selling Christmas goods, hamburgers, and other products.
