[Aoba Symbol Road Illuminations]

Shizuoka's winter tradition, Aoba Symbol Road Illuminations

Aoba Symbol Road, the tree-lined street leading about 500 m from Aoi Square to Tokiwa Park, will be decorated with beautifully glittering illuminations for a limited period. The theme for the 2019-2020 light display is "Omachi HIKARI Wonderland". The sparkling illuminations, along with the "Tower of Light" set to appear from November 15th to January 13th, will decorate Omachi with color and light. The symbolic monument, about 8 meters high, is one of the must-sees of this event.
* Omachi: An expression mainly used within Shizuoka City that refers to the center of the city.

One reason that this event is so popular is that the lights stay lit until 10:00 p.m. (12:00 a.m. from December 13th to January 13th)
