Illumination

The “Osaka Festival of Lights” beautifully illuminates Osaka at night with fantastical glittering lights. One of the main programs of this festival is the “Midosuji Illumination,” held at Midosuji, Osaka’s symbol street.
In January of 2015, the Midosuji Illumination was certified as holding the world record for “most roadside trees illuminated.” This year’s illumination, which will cover a total length of about 4 kilometers from Umeda to Nanba in colorful lights, was based on the design concept of a “symbolic street illumination that gently wraps the people of Osaka in light.”

Highlights

  • The Osaka Festival of Lights is made up of two core programs –the “Midosuji Illumination” and the “Osaka Hikari no Renaissance” in Nakanoshima– and several other area-specific programs.
  • Midosuji is divided into 7 separate zones, with different overlapping colors in each zone.
  • One must-see is the special illumination, in which you can see special AR (augmented reality) effects when holding up your smartphone in designated areas.
