‘Lightscape in Rokko’ Illuminations to Capture the Autumn Sunset

25.July.2018 | SPOT

The Rokko Shidare Observatory will hold an illumination event titled Lightscape in Rokko ~Autumn Version~ this year from September 7 to November 30.

The event will use over 10 million colourful LED lights to illuminate the entire observatory. Created by light designer Masayuki Fushimi, the spectacle encapsulates autumn in the evenings at Mount Rokko. The tower and surrounding tree area will also be lit up in another piece by Fushimi as part of Rokko Meets Art 2018 beginning on September 8, which will add another layer of magical and captivating illuminations.


Lightscape in Rokko is themed on The Pillow Book and is being held throughout the year to capture each season. The theme for spring was ‘spring dawn,’ and the currently ongoing summer theme is ‘summer night sky.’ The theme for autumn will be ‘autumn sunset,’ and later in the year ‘early winter morning.’

Enjoy the spectacular sight of 10 million lights filling your vision at the Rokko Shidare Observatory and tower.
