Aoba Symbol Road
As the largest winter lights event in the city in downtown Shizuoka, the entire park, which stretches about 500 meters from north to south, is decorated with a tree-lined path of lights and a variety of objects. This year's event, which will be held for the 32nd time in 2021, has been redesigned with "flower illuminations,” flower-shaped lights which are lovely to look at up close. The high-quality works, such as the archway with countless lights pouring down from overhead, have caused many to be fascinated. The drapery of the trees reminds one of the Champs-Élysées in Paris. In the center of the symbol road, there is a large symbolic monument based on the theme of the year. Taking a picture in front of the monument is highly recommended.
There will also be a "flower bear" made of flowers at Aoi Square.
