“Sendai’s Pageant of Starlight” highlights the city’s winter beauty.

Each year 600,000 lights, called Starlight Leaves, illuminate the trees that line downtown Sendai’s Jozenji-Dori.

Starlight Wink is held every day during the event period at 6 pm, 7 pm, and 8 pm. All lights are temporarily shut off for one minute before being relit. The time between lightings is just long enough to get the crowds excited and cheering, so be sure to enjoy the event!
