Important Cultural Property・Ōten-mon Gate


Every year, the Ōten-mon Gate, a designated Important Cultural Property, is illuminated in the popular YORU MO-DE style. The dynamic lighting that accentuates the architectural beauty enhances the vivid red and vermilion colors of this sacred gate of Heian Jingu Shrine.

Shrine Precincts


The shrine pavilions of Heian Jingu Shrine will be transformed into the world of YORU MO-DE with a mystical production of lights and sounds. The lights of the lanterns carried by visitors changes colors and echo off one another, enveloping the vast precincts of Heian Jingu Shrine with their glows.

Important Cultural Property・Daigoku-den

Interactive Art "Corridor of Light"

The Daigoku-den Hall, a designated Important Cultural Property, will be decorated with the "Corridor of Light," an interactive artwork of light. Colorful lanterns illuminate the long corridor of Daigoku-den, which will be open to the public exclusively for this event. When the NAKED Distance Lanterns® are placed on the pedestals, the projection mapping displays of the corridor transform in this interactive artwork.
