Event days in December and January: Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays (except the New Year’s closure. See below*)
Located in Nabari, Mie Prefecture, Akame 48 Waterfalls is a symbolic attraction in Muro Akame Aoyama National Park which lies across Nara and Mie prefecture. It is said that this mysterious valley with clear streams used to be a training ground for ninja.
This year, 2,000 bamboo lanterns — a lamp made of a bamboo tube with hand-carved decorations — illuminate the valley and create a fantastic atmosphere with a background of colored leaves.
As an SDGs project, this event is aiming to conserve the environment: All the lanterns used for this event are made out of thinned bamboo abandoned in Nabari.
