2019 light up event?

Hello, we are Gassho Travel.
Time flies, it is June already…

“It is almost time to think about the light up event of next year in Shirakawago.
Other than Japanese, there are more and more Asian tourists coming here.
And thank you everyone for your love to Shirakawago!!”

“The rules of the annual light up event in Shirakawago will change a lot in 2019.
The next winter light up event (2019) will be the 33rd one,”

we really apologize for the poor arrangements and unclear information in the previous events.

After the light up event in 2018, we have reviewed many ways to do a better job.
We hope that our guests can be more satisfied in the coming 2019 light up event.

Although there are only 580 locals living in this small village, we would like to do our best to run the event. Please give us your advice anytime!!
