The Museum Meiji-Mura holds, on weekends and holidays from Dec. 2nd, 2017 to Feb. 18th, 2018, the “Kirameki Meiji-Mura” (Twinkling Meiji-Mura) event. As electric illumination itself has roots in the olden days of the Meiji Period, the event is opportunely themed on the collaboration between modern technologies and the impressive collection of structures.
