-- Bright Blinking Blue Stars --

Countless light bulbs decorate the event spaces near Otagawa Station in a heart-warming display of colors.
This illumination takes place each winter in front of Donden Hiroba, Oyane Hiroba (covered event plaza in front of Meitetsu Otagawa Station), and the rotary.
In accordance with each year's theme, the areas to the east and west of the station present a fantastic, coordinated illumination. The entire area is lit-up with artistic illumination, such as the shooting star tree, which imitates the starry night sky overhead filled with shooting stars, or the star photo spot. When visiting, please remember to bring warm clothes. During the event period, there will also be collaboration events in addition to the illumination.
