“AkaPla” (Red Brick Plaza) Illumination 2015, held December 14th 2015 - March 14th 2016

"Akapla" Illumination 2016-2017 will be held at the Sapporo Kita 3-jo Plaza ("Akapla" Red Brick Plaza) from November 11th (Friday) until March 14th (Tuesday) next year* !

Akapla's beautiful rows of streetside gingko trees, which are in fact Hokkaido's oldest streetside trees, will be specially lit up for their starring role in this event. Three colors of LED lights will illuminate the plaza in an ever-changing kaleidoscope of color, together with multicolor spotlights, all backed by Sapporo's historical Former Hokkaido Government Office, affectionately known as the Red Brick Building. Enjoy a strikingly vivid presentation of one of Sapporo's most iconic streetscape views.

This year will mark the 2nd Akapla Illumination, and the beautiful night scene will be taken to a new level by even more LED lights! We invite you to experience the magical lights amidst Sapporo's cold winter skies.
