Night with a Thousand Lights <br> Tsurumi Ward has many historic sites and nature, but it also has a variety of faces such as an international region and a science frontier district, which is a state-of-the-art research base. In addition, traditional events and local events are actively held, and the town is full of charm and vibrancy. Since 2012, under the slogan of "Thousands of customers and millions of visitors," efforts have been made to promote the appeal of the ward and attract customers. Among them, Omotoyama Sojiji is a powerful asset.
"Smart Illuminations Tsurumi" will be held under the theme of "Night that lights a thousand lights", set in Sojiji, Omotoyama, which has been transmitting Zen culture in Tsurumi for about 100 years. This program is mainly composed of the "carrying light" project from Tsurumi Station, which is the center of the ward, to Sojiji Temple, and while respecting the atmosphere of Sojiji Temple, Japanese, Chinese and Korean artists and residents of the ward , The new Tsurumi night will be quietly colored with a thousand lights.
