Information for the annual Asaka Winter Light Terrace illumination.

Asaka Illumination

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. They enhanced and enlarged the display since last year, 2021. I don’t know how many lights they are using in 2022, but there are several different displays to enjoy throughout the period and in the lead up to Christmas they also have Christmas decorations.

However, last year was particularly special as the city was celebrating 55 years, so they had a “throbbing” theme with 55 hearts in the illumination. Because of the anniversary and the heart theme last year, the illumination was up until Valentine’s Day, but this year (2022) the illumination ends on January 31st. In 2022, the theme is “Winter Party”. Normally, during the period of the illumination there are kitchen cars on occasion (not daily) by the playground / sports hall in the park.

Here are ten other places you can see illumination in Saitama Prefecture.
