Cocoon City Christmas Candle Night 2020

December 21 @ 17:00 December 25 @ 21:00

Candle Night Cocoon City

Cocoon City Christmas Candle Night 2020

Candle Night 2020

The Saitama Shintoshin area, including Cocoon city, is one of the most Christmassy areas I know of in Saitama prefecture. Between winter illumination, Christmas decorations, Christmas markets, Christmas concerts and this candle night, it is easy to get in the Christmas spirit in the festive heart of Saitama City.

And this year, the 2020 Christmas candle nights will be held for five nights instead of the usual two. It will start on Monday December 21st and be on nightly between 5 and 9 pm until Christmas night (December 25th). The area is in Cocoon 2 in the Cocoon Hiroba (open space). Around 2000 candles are usually used for the candle night display.

Make your own candle event

For the two days before this event they have a candle making event. From 11 am on the 19th and 20th of December you can make your own candle in Cocoon city. In order to participate you need to have receipts for a 1000 yen worth of purchases in Cocoon City for that day.
