The theme of this year’s “Osaka Hikari no Kyoen” (Osaka Feast of Light) will be “Light of Hope” and the night of Osaka will be decorated in a fantastic way. A number of light events will be held throughout Osaka Prefecture, including the “Midosuji Illumination” that fills Midosuji Avenue with lights and the “OSAKA Hikari Renaissance” in the Nakanoshima area.
Midosuji” is the main street in Osaka, running north to south from Umeda to Namba. The Midosuji Illumination will be the main event of this year’s event as well, with many people stopping to be enveloped in a world of light. The theme of this year’s event is “A symbolic street of light that gently envelops visitors to Osaka,” and the street trees will be decorated with countless lights.
OSAKA Hikari no Renaissance
The theme of “OSAKA Hikari-Renaissance” is “Light Art Festival”, which spreads out along the Nakanoshima waterfront, and colors Nakanoshima, the symbol of the water city of Osaka. The Central Public Hall projection mapping and illumination will transform the Nakanoshima area, home to such important cultural properties as the Central Public Hall and the Nakanoshima Library, into a fantastical space where Osaka’s culture and art can be found.
