Gorgeous lights and attractions are dotted alongside the 180m canal!

Canal City Hakata
"Canal City Hakata" is a huge shopping center located about 10 minutes away from JR Hakata Station on foot. The multi-purpose facility's annual Christmas lights are back and better than ever! The "Canal Panorama Illumination" lights up the shopping facility's delightful 180m stream until 1st March 2020! Make sure to check-out these gorgeous lights sparkling under the night sky! Some popular installations from previous year's illuminations have returned. That means you can catch the Dome of Light, which has 12 meter diameter, and the "Tree of Knowledge" if you missed them last Winter! New attractions will also be featured in this year's display, such as the "Wings of Light!" There are so many glittering spots to take photographs throughout the facility! Do not forget about the magnificent water fountains just behind the Sun Plaza Stage. You can get a great view from the top floors! A special limited attraction called the "Christmas Panorama - Santa Claus is coming to canal -" will also be running until 25th December. Stop-by next time you are in the area! The whole place looks stunning once the sun goes down! * More details about water fountain display is available on the official website (Click >> HERE for more information!)
