#028 Kobe Luminarie Illuminations

For two weeks a year the city of Kobe is lit up at night with over 200,000 lights arranged in beautiful displays.

The city suffered a devastating earthquake in January 1995 and every December since then they’ve held this breathtaking commemorative night-time light festival.

It attracts millions of visitors… so you’re herded through the display in dense crowds.

But it’s just so pretty.
