Kobe Lumiarie 2024

Kobe Luminarie is a large-scale winter illumination event held in Kobe.

Since the first event was held in 1995, when the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake hit Kobe, it has been held as a symbol of hope for Kobe and as an event to pass on the memory of the earthquake victims to future generations.

The past two times were cancelled due to COVID-19, and alternative programs have been held.

In January 2024, the 29th Kobe Luminarie will be held for the first time in four years.

Please come and see the beautiful illumination that colors the winter nights of Kobe.

※ Appreciation is free of charge and reservations are not required, but tickets are required to see some of the artworks in Meriken Park venue.
