Kobe Municipal Fruit & Flower Park is lit up with more than 5 million LED lights. The display, which runs from 5 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. each night, continues until Jan 31. Kobe Illuminage, marking its 10th year, was created after the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami in 2011 to encourage the victims of the devastation and to send a “light” of hope from Kobe. As in previous years, the popular maze features light-up animals (below). Admission to the park is 1,500 yen for adults and 800 yen for children aged 3 to elementary school.
