Hello OkiFam! Winter is here, and what better way to celebrate the season than by going to see illuminations!
For December’s OkiAJET Event, we’ll travel down south to see one of the biggest illumination displays in Okinawa, the Itoman Peaceful Illuminations. These dazzling lights not only create a fantasy world at night, but also carry meaning behind them as well: Prayer for Peace.
We’ll try to meet up at the site at 7 PM (December 15th, 2018), and keep our locations updated via LINE/FB Event Page in case anyone comes later.
Entrance Fee is 500 yen.
So if you’re free that day and want to witness an unique experience, come join us during Okinawa’s sparkling festivities!
