This year, MITSUKOSHI BGC unveils a dazzling display of lights and activities that promises to capture the essence of a Japanese Christmas in the Philippines.

The ceremony will feature traditional Japanese elements infused with the festive spirit, including performances, seasonal treats, and, of course, the grand illumination of MITSUKOSHI BGC’s light installation and its unique centerpiece, featuring Shirakawa-go, which is registered as a World Heritage Site that is illuminated only six times a year during winter.

The light-up event here is a popular event that represents winter in Japan.
