News from NANTO・GOKAYAMA

2016.11.17~20 World Heritage Site Gokayama Ainokura Light-Up!

One of Nanto city’s most popular attractions is Ainokura village in Gokayama. On each day from November 17th through 20th, the village will be illuminated from sunset to 9PM in a light-up event. As the “winter preparation” event, this illumination is the last of five Ainokura light-up events per year. See the mist in the mountains while feeling the calm chill that hints at the coming winter. From slightly before 5PM, watch the village slowly darken and enjoy the charm of the steadily changing scenery. It is getting colder in Gokayama, though, so make sure you bundle up! If you’re lucky, you might even be able to catch the first snowfall of the year!
