[Aoba Symbol Road Illuminations]

Shizuoka's winter tradition, Aoba Symbol Road Illuminations

Aoba Symbol Road, the tree-lined street leading about 500 m from Aoi Square to Tokiwa Park, will be decorated with beautifully glittering illuminations for a limited period. The theme for 2018 and 2019 is "Omachi Wonderland". The sparkling illumination and the merry-go-round, which will be open from December 8th to January 6th, make Omachi look like a dreamland. The symbolic monument, about 8 meters high, is one of the must-sees of this event.
* Omachi: An expression mainly used within Shizuoka City that refers to the center of the city.
