Misato Illumination

Misato Illumination will be turned on this weekend, on Saturday. They will have a switch on event on that first night, December 2nd 2023. This illumination runs right until the middle of March, to White Day, which is later than most. On average, even the larger illumination events end on Valentine’s day – there are exceptions though. I have not had a post about this particular illumination in Misato to date, so this is new to ‘In Saitama’ in 2023.

Misato Illumination

The JR Misato Station is decorated with lights for the winter season. Each night they are turned on from 5 pm until 10.30 pm. Unfortunately, as I have not been to this illumination and information is limited online, I don’t know how many lights they use in the displays.

Switch on event

They will have a switch on ceremony on the first night, Saturday December 2nd 2023, from 5 pm. It is just a small event with some live jazz music and a raffle also.
