Lake Haruna Illumination Festa 2019

Last update :

Lake Haruna is lit up with spectacular colors in the Illumination Festa, with illuminations, light shows, and fireworks!

Located at the summit of Mt. Haruna, in Gunma Prefecture’s Takasaki City, Lake Haruna is at an altitude of 1,084 meters above sea level, making it the second highest lake in Japan! Due to this, the air at the lake is very clear, making the lights of the Illumination Festa even more beautiful.

The lakeshore’s boardwalk and trees, and a portion of the lake as well, are decorated and illuminated with around 550,000 colorful balls of light! On six of the event days, including the first and last days, fireworks will be launched over the lake. Also, every night a light show is put on using the country’s strongest laser system, so be sure to check it out!
