Long-running illumination event the dazzles the verdant nature of Jozankei
June 1 – October 31, 2023
Jozankei Nature Luminarie is an event involving magical light performances that first began in 2016 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Jozankei Onsen. The event venue stretches from the walking path of Futami Park along the onsen resort town’s gorge to Futami Suspension Bridge, which stands as a symbol of Jozankei. The unique light performances provide the town with a completely different look than in the daytime, including a corridor of light enveloped in faint light, the light forest where flowers of light bloom, and delicate imagery that lights up the suspension bridge. Jozankei provides the perfect natural backdrop for this event because of the fragrance of the surrounding forest, flowing river, and sounds of insects. Why not stay overnight in the onsen resort town and take a walk after dinner in your yukata to enjoy the ambience?
