The lighting has created Instagram-worthy spots all over the facility. Look upwards after the sun has gone down for a great view of the ornately decorated "Chisiki no Ki (lit. the Tree of Knowledge)" and the sparkling gates inside the mall. The star-filled atmosphere inside the golden "dome" is also a highly impressive! Strolling through the illuminations is incredibly romantic! There are benches dotted along the canal, which are perfect if you have a drink in your hand and are looking for somewhere to stop for a chat with a close one! If you are planning to watch a movie or go shopping in Canal City Hakata over the next couple of weeks, make sure to take in the magical atmosphere created by the fantastic illuminations before you head home!(Editorial Dept.: Gon)
