Fantastic Show of Light and Sound---Illumination Event at Odawara Castle   

     Odawara Castle is said to have been impregnable in the age of provincial wars.  This famous castle is illuminated by colorful lights in the event.  The overwelming scale of the beautiful images of seasonal flowers and stereophonic sound from 20 speakers combined is just impressive.  You can enjoy this experience until March 4.  Another popular program is a small illumination show that you can start with your friends and family by holding each other’s hands and touching the sensor buttons.
