Hoshikawa Illumination 2024-2025

Elegant illuminations in champagne gold and ocean blue

Venue: Hoshikawa Dori, 1-chōme Hoshikawa, Kumagaya, Saitama, Japan When: Early Dec 2024 - Late Mar 2025

The Hoshikawa Illumination event takes place along Kumagaya's Hoshikawa Street, and it includes around 40,000 sparkling LED lights adorning trees in alternating shades of champagne gold and ocean blue. The elegant atmosphere makes it a perfect spot for a romantic stroll arm-in-arm with your significant other during the colder months!

Unlike some illumination events, the Hoshikawa Illumination isn't limited to the Christmas period only – it runs all the way until the end of March, giving visitors plenty of time after the festive season to stop by.

The lights will be on from 5pm until 10pm during the event period, and there is no admission fee to appreciate their beauty.

Getting there

Hoshikawa Street is located approximately 5 minutes on foot from Kumagaya Station, which is served by the Jōetsu Shinkansen, the Hokuriku Shinkansen, the Takasaki Line, and the Chichibu Main Line.

For those who opt to drive, there are numerous paid lots in the area surrounding the station.
