Asaka Winter Light Terrace あさか冬のあかりテラス starts tonight, Friday December 10th 2021, in Asaka City.
Asaka Illumination 2021 – 2022
The “Asaka Winter Light Terrace” is centered around “Symbol Road” by Asaka Central Park and near Asaka City Library. In addition, there is also illumination at Asaka and Kita Asaka stations. Previously the illumination was within the Asaka Central park at which time they used approximately 30,000 blue and white bulbs. Currently information is not yet available as to how many lights they have used this year. But it sounds like it is a larger display than in the past.
What they have revealed is the theme of this year’s illumination is “throbbing”, as in a throbbing heart. To that end, there are 55 hearts to be found in this year’s night illumination, in celebration of the city’s 55 year anniversary. There is an SDGs Christmas tree made out of pet bottles, a heart photo spot, lanterns as well as other focal points to look out for. During the period of the illumination there will occasionally be kitchen cars by the playground / sports hall in the park.
It is one of the smaller illumination events in Saitama and hasn’t made it into any of the large “Top Ten illumination spots in Saitama” yet. However, it is a picturesque illumination display and popular with locals. Here are ten other places you can see illumination in Saitama Prefecture this year.
Dates: Friday December 10th 2021 to Monday February 14th 2022
