Let there be light
Tomo came down to Nagoya for a short weekend and we decided to go to the Kobe ルミナリエ (illumination, or Christmas lights). Tomo has been before, and we thought it would be fun to run down there on the train, catch the lights, and head back to Nagoya because we had some things we were trying to accomplish. It seems everyone else was trying to visit the illumination as well because the queue was incredibly long.
Here the crowd sweeps back on itself.
And here it just seems to go on, and on, and on.
And the sign really says about 90 minutes from here. And I do believe it was close to 90 minutes from that point.
Fortunately, along the way, there was a little bit of a pre-show with well lit streets and department stores.
We were fortunate to even get a little bit of Engrish along the way. Maybe Flench is a more appropriate title instead of English. I’ve never been to a place called “Tooth Tooth” in France. Tomo noted that it looked more like a “Salon Dethe” instead of “Salon de The.” I guess you have to watch your spaces.
We finally got there though, and the show was pretty spectacular.
I found the glow from all the cameras to be a show itself. And it seems most of those are from cell phones. Japanese LOVE cell phone cameras!
Tomo didn’t mind taking pictures, nor did other visitors.
I enjoyed the reflection off the Louis Vuitton shop.
Here is what everyone came for:
