Takehara Machinami, Shokeinomichi(Takehara Historic Zone Illumination)

The light-up event featuring local bamboo trees.
HIROSHIMA

The bamboo tree is a symbol of Takehara City. Local people make candle holders from bamboo to illuminate the streets in the historically preserved area which still retains the atmosphere of the Edo Era (1603-1868).
The sight of 6,000 candles emitting gentle light is indescribable. Art made of bamboo is also exhibited at a sake brewery, and you may have an opportunity to listen to live jazz and acoustic guitar concerts.

Held during the last weekend of October(The event is cancelled in 2021)
