Nankinmachi Lantern Fair

4:00pm – 10:00pm

The already beautiful and bustling streets of Kobe’s China Town will be decorated with hundreds of red lanterns until January 9.

The magical surroundings are perfect for an evening stroll as you enjoy a tasty snack, have dinner or do some shopping, and only a few minutes away from the other light displays in Kobe.

On the first day (Dec. 9), the lights will turn on at 7 p.m. and a Chinese lion dance will be performed.

Note that as the lights will be switched on after sunset, the 4:00 p.m. time slot isn’t exact.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
