Christmas Illumination at JR Tazawako Station

The plaza in front of JR Tazawako Station has been finally illuminated!

Last year was our first attempt, on which we started the preparation in the last minute. This year, we were able to have much more community involvement, thanks to a volunteer group from following local companies:

JR Tazawako Station

Tazawako Ski School

 (Farmer’s inn near Lake Tazawa)

 (A wholesale distributor of Akita produces)

(in Nyuto Onsenkyo)

 (A onsen hotel in Mizusawa Onsen Area)

(A family-owned guesthouse in Tazawako Plateau)

 (Electiricity Company)

(A family-owned guesthouse in Tazawako Plateau)

Mr. Taguchi, a local volunteer

Mr. Endo, a chief policeman

The illumination was set out last weekend. The weather wasn’t in the best condition on Saturday, so it was postponed to the following day. The illumination will be turned on in the evening until 10 p.m.

I bet it's lovely to be at Tazawako Station at night to enjoy the illumination. How long will it be up? Until Xmas day?

Thank you for your comment! Well it will be up there till March actually. Quite long, but it's an effort to keep the freezing Tazawako winter warm. :)
