ROHM's Winter Illumination in KyotoResumed after a Four-year Hiatus12 September 2014 - Sightseeing/Events
ROHM Co., Ltd. will resume its winter illumination in the area around its Head Office in Ukyo Ward, Kyoto, on November 28 after a four-year hiatus due to its suspension following the Great East Japan Earthquake. In response to residents' requests, they will revive the light show, which has taken root as a winter sightseeing spot.
The illumination, started in 1995, was the largest scale decorative lighting in the city and many residents and tourists visited it every year. Due to the electricity shortage after the earthquake and the worsening business environment, they canceled the event from 2011 to 2013.
Amid requests to resume the illumination, they decided to implement the event as the company's financial condition has improved. A total of 68 roadside trees around its headquarters will be decorated with approximately 600,000 LEDs and light bulbs. A spokesperson for ROHM said, "We are considering various lighting arrangements and are looking forward to many visitors to our winter illumination."
The event will be held until December 25. It will be lit up from 4:45 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day during the period.(translated by Galileo, Inc.)
