The Inzai Illuminations are a relatively new annual event which commenced back in 2018. The event has grown year after year, and in 2021, approximately half a million lights will decorate the area outside Chiba New Town Chuo Station – an impressive increase from around 200,000 lights in 2020.
There will be three main illumination areas at the station – the north exit is the "city zone", the south exit is the "natural zone", and the front of the station is the "city-nature harmony zone". These zones are intended to capture the characteristics of Inzai City in light-form.
This year's event (2021) runs from November 13th until February 20th - please check the official Inzai City website for details in future years.
