Light-up event by “Naked” at Jozankei Onsen, Hokkaido
NAKED, INC. is a creative company that produces events in various fields ranging from art to food and nature based on the latest technology and creative ideas. Now in its seventh year, this year’s event will again take place in the beautiful natural setting of Jozankei, with its forests, rivers, and valleys, where visitors can enjoy a night walk of lights that fuse nature and illumination.
Night Walk of Light, where Jozankei’s nature and lights fuse together
In 2022, the park area starting from the entrance will be newly renewed with an illumination performance. A 2.5-meter-high blue dome-shaped sculpture that resembles water and a gold-tinted illumination will create a fantastic lake of light.
The kappa, the guardian deity of Jozankei, has long been revered as a guardian deity of the area, and the kappa will lead you to various light displays that are typical of “Naked. Visitors can experience the great nature of Jozankei through an interactive art experience in which kappa footprints appear when they step on ripples of water on the floor, and through projection mapping of the Futami Suspension Bridge and a lighting show in the valley, which create a fantastic world where light and nature merge.
