Making its debut with 1,000 lights in 1981 as the first decorative lighting display in Japan, Sapporo White Illumination has expanded to include 520,000 lights decorating the city in wintertime. At Odori Park, beautiful objects expressing the theme of space and nature, and trees lining Ekimae and Minami-Ichijo Streets are decorated with lights.
