Osaka Castle lights up for illumination festival

From today (December 16th ) until February, visitors to Osaka Castle will be able to enjoy a stunning array of projections and light shows as part of a new illumination festival that has been put on.

The projection will see images of butterflies, flowers, waterfalls and tigers dancing over the 16th century facade of the building, which is one of the city's major tourist attractions.

Featuring high-tech illumination techniques that make use of three-dimensional projection mapping, the light show sees the castle cycle through an incredible spectrum of colours and hues.

Those who pay for admission to Osaka Castle will be entitled to a prime spot outside where they can view the light show and take photos.

Even those who cannot stay until nighttime will enjoy the five-floor museum, which contains items dating all the way back to the 16th century when the building was originally constructed.
