In the evenings, the headquarters building, public garden area in front of the main entrance, and the area around The Inamori Library will be transformed with roughly 210,000 LEDs of various colors and an 86-meter giant Christmas tree display.

For the giant Christmas tree, the Kyocera headquarters 20-story building is decorated to create the shape of a classic fir tree by utilizing or blocking selected lighting from office windows on both the east and west sides of the building. Flashing lamps, green and red lighting and a huge "Merry X-mas" sign complete the festive holiday scene which can be seen from near and far.

There will also be a classical concert performed by the Seibo Gakuin Junior High School / High School handbell and chorus groups. Come to enjoy the heart-warming voices and harmonious sound of the handbells while viewing the illumination display.
