This is a lighting exhibition that is held over 2 days. The contestants enter beautifully sculpted lamps made from Mino paper that are then displayed on the Old Streets. Great works are then chosen by the judges. The golden glow of light through the paper gives an elegant atmosphere there. This aims to not only promote paper that commands a history of 1,300 years and to explore the creativity, but to revitalize the town which thrived in the Edo era and its branding. We’ve accumulated 9,934 works during the last 24 consecutive years of hosting this. The prize-winning and excellent works have contributed greatly to the advancement of Mino’s name recognition and to the promotion of tourists to the city by exhibiting them in various other events taking place both in and out of the nation.
