Last year, they didn’t have the usual switch on event on account of the coronavirus. However, they are currently planning to have a switch on event on the first night of the illumination. Which in 2021 is Friday December 3rd. On that night the illumination will be turned on, after the short ceremony, at 6.10 pm. The illumination will be on nightly thereafter from 5 pm to 11 pm, until Monday February 14th 2022.

Kawaguchi Illumination

Kawaguchi’s illumination is called “Kawaguchi’s Fantasy lights” or Kawaguchi Hikari no Fantasy かわぐち光のファンタジー in Japanese. There are displays at three of Kawaguchi train stations. The stations are Kawaguchi Station, Nishi Kawaguchi station and also Saitama Railway Corporation’s Higashi Kawaguchi Station. The Kawaguchi station is the main one. There is illumination at the West exit, the East area rotary and pedestrian deck. In previous years they used about 300,000 bulbs in total. However, this year there will be about 260,000 lights. This year’s lights will be blue in support of medical staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic.
