    Every year Kobe City phase in paradise garden lighting event was held at 9/2 and 3. Volunteers converge to differently at the end of August every year, I went to cheer on. 1600 candles light the ignition and extinguishing it was hasty, so next-day leg is sore.

    Japan garden light up event is held every year. I went to Javanese dance and wayankli (shadow play), will be held at the Hall. Shadow puppets are using technology and gamelan music is overwhelming. You can feel free to take pictures and touch the instruments. This time I visited engineer from Indonesia. Great performance can enjoy garden entrance fee alone. Indonesia, Bali, South-East Asia like to recommend!

    Lovely garden, though you don't lose the feeling of being in the city. Colonial era house is striking
