Meyameya Illumination 2022

Seasonal Color at Kobe's Meriken Park

Venue: Meriken Park When: Dec 22nd - Dec 31st 2022

A new illumination event at Kobe's Meriken Park is set to run for 10 days this December, bringing plenty of color to the portside city. The theme for the Meyameya Illuminations is Nature/Sun/Future/Vision, with the hope that the blessings of nature will continue to be appreciated well into the future.

The park's Fountain Square will be lit up in all shades of the rainbow, including nature-themed projection mapping on the walkways. There will also be a paid section where visitors can sample hot sake varieties from 26 different breweries in the region.
