Smart Illumination Yokohama 2021

5:30pm – 9:30pm
Free

For five days in early November, you can spend an evening oohing and aahing over the nightly illuminations that transform Yokohama’s waterfront area. The yearly displays are created by artists both homegrown and international and began in 2011. The use of energy-saving technologies (like LED lighting) is a nod to the way of the future—hence “smart illumination”.

Some installations are interactive, and workshops are being offered as well if you’re looking for a more hands-on experience.

And while you’re in the area, check out the Yokohama art scene. See our guide here
