As winter arrives in Sendai, everyone starts to look forward to one particular event. From December 12 until the end of this year, the center of the city will be illuminated in the “Sendai Pageant of Starlight,” an event which has taken place since 1986. From its humble beginnings as a small event by local volunteers, it has now become a seasonal tradition of Sendai, and well known across Japan. Hundreds of thousands of lights envelop Jozenji-dori and Aoba-dori, Sendai’s main avenues, warming the winter with its romantic atmosphere.

This event was started by citizen-volunteers and is well known all over the country as a special winter time event.
Keyaki-namiki (row of Zelkova trees) on Jozenji-dori (Avenue) and Aoba-dori (Avenue) which are two beloved streets of the citizens of Sendai are decorated with hundreds of thousand of lights to create a fantasitic luminous corridor.

Special Features

LED Lighting
The special LED color for the Sendai Pageant of Starlight was jointly developed by the Sendai Pageant of Starlight Executive Committee. The specially designed LED light bulbs have a warmer color than the conventional LED light bulbs.

Views of the Sendai Pageant of Starlight
Enjoy breathtaking views of the Sendai Pageant of Starlight while walking under the zelkova trees turned into a luminous tunnel of lights. Nearby restaurants and the “Loople Sendai Pageant of Starlight Bus” also provide a great viewing experience.

All of 600,000 light bulbs are off for a moment. People wait for the very moment without blinking. Suddenly, dazzling light bursts in your eyes and its glows with a shout of joy along the streets. “Starlight Winks” or illumination turning off/on is scheduled three times a day at 6 pm, 7 pm and 8 pm.
