The splendid illuminations that light up JR HAKATA CITY is back!

The first-ever "Stardust Wave" - a starry sky on the roof made up of lights!
"Hikari no Machi HAKATA" at JR HAKATA CITY has become one of the popular illumination spots in Fukuoka. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the illuminations are back with a theme: "The Silent Yell of the Starry Sky". Although it has been a year full of unexpected things that make us uneasy, with the wish of "gathering happiness to Hakata and light up everyone's heart", this year there are about 800,000 LED lights brightening up the JR Hakata Station Square. Above the symbolic tree are countless lights that shimmer and change colours like a starry sky, giving JR Hakata Station Square a brand new look. The Christmas market will start from Wednesday 11th November to Friday 25th December, with a number of restaurants and retail stores. Definitely not to be missed!
