Fukaya Winter illumination 2023 2024

Each year in winter, Fukaya City have beautiful illumination displays around the city. Since 2022, there are an additional two with the completion of two new, long awaited, facilities, for a total of six. Two of the six have an event post of their own, so I have linked them in this post, along with details for the other four…
