Enjoy Hakata Old Town Light-up Walk Online!

Unfortunately, the “Hakata Old Town Light-up Walk,” in which the buildings and gardens of temples and shrines are illuminated with lights, has been cancelled again in 2021. This year, however, a website has been set up on the city’s website to provide videos introducing the event as well as well as temples and shrines, so you can enjoy various contents online.

Hakata Old Town Light-up Walk special web site is new open! 

A new website has been set up on the Fukuoka City website where you can enjoy the Light Up Walk online. You will find fascinating information including videos of temples and shrines, and the highlights of the Light-up Walk.
