The downtown area of Osaka is currently aglow with a variety of lights for the holidays, to the delight of couples and photographers.

Osaka Hikari-Renaissance is an annual illumination event that was launched in the city’s central Nakanoshima area in 2003, and its lighting displays have adorned buildings and lined the river banks in Osaka every year since. Organizers say the event attracted around 3.29 million people last year.
