Christmas tree appears to shines a light on downtown Naha

On November 18 in the square in front of Palette in downtown Naha, the lights of the Christmas tree lit up the night sky.

On the night of November 18, a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony was held in the event square of Palette-Kumoji in Naha by the three groups of the Palette-Kumoji, the Ryubo Department Store and Kokusai Street and Kencho-Mae Station Shopping District Association. The fantastic atmosphere of Christmas enveloped the town early in the festive season.

The crowd in the square raised a cheer as the countdown ended with the nine-meter tall tree lighting up.

A choir of children from the Zenrin Kindergarten set the mood for the event by singing before the countdown started.

Five year-old kindergarten pupil Yurika Higa smiled as she said,“ I was glad to be able to sing in front of the Christmas tree, but I was a little bit nervous.”

The Christmas tree will be in place until December 25.
