The Festival of Lights of Osaka is comprised of two events. (1) The Midosuji Illumination takes place from late November to early January. It holds the world record for “most roadside trees illuminated.” (2) The Osaka Hikari-Renaissance takes place from mid-November to 31 December. In 2017, to celebrate its 15th anniversary, the Hikari-Renaissance was composed of five special programmes. One of them invited the audience to attend a videomapping show on the facade of the Nakanoshima Library, which was founded in 1904. It was called the “Wall Tapestry Lighting Show”. The 2022 edition took place from 3 November to 31 December.

Dates of the previous/upcoming edition: 03 November 2024 – 31 January 2024
