From November 18th (Thursday) until December 26th (Sunday), the Yokohama Cross Night Illumination event will light up the city at several venues around the Yokohama Port area.

The event has a number of components, including an illumination "night walk" at Shinko Central Square, dynamic light and sound illuminations across the city, 12 light portal illuminations that make different sounds as visitors walk through them, and an art cruise which uses projection mapping technology to illuminate the waters of the Ōoka River and Nakamura River where the cruise takes place.
