Christmas tree appears to shines a light on downtown Naha
November 22, 2011 Ryukyu Shimpo
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.
