Let’s enjoy the winter scenery of the port town of Yokohama, the light art and illuminations around the city!
 Yokohama is bustling for Christmas. From December 6th, we will be developing a “light art program that makes you want to take a walk through the streets of Yokohama at night” throughout the city. As part of Yokohama’s largest illumination event “Yorunoyo”, art bases and organizations in Yokohama collaborate. You can appreciate and experience art, film, theater, and street decorations for free in places where you can feel the atmosphere of a port town, such as seaside wharves, parks, roads, and historical buildings.
During the “Yorunoyo” period when the entire city is illuminated, there are many arts and performances that you can see while enjoying the night view. Please enjoy night events unique to Yokohama. “Elegant Night Tour”
