Yamagata, Tsuruoka Winter Festival Light Up
A fantastical snowy world lit up by warm lights
The Tsuruoka Winter Festival, which creates a beautiful winter sight, lights up the area!
During the festival, the former Nishitagawa Government Office (now Chido Museum) and the museum Taihokan inside Tsuruoka Park are both lit up, creating a beautifully romantic nighttime snowscape.
The festival of lights was inspired by the melody of Yoshinao Nakada’s song, “Yuki no Furu Machi wo.” Whether you go with a special someone to make precious memories, to see the lights with children, or even go by yourself, it is a beautiful sight we recommend you experience.
