An event that bathes footpaths with about 25,000 LED lights in changing colors is illuminating the night in renowned terraced rice fields here that are set against the Sea of Japan, reported The Asahi Shimbun (Japan).

The light show, called “Aze no Kirameki” (Twinkles of footpaths), started on Oct. 13 in Shiroyone Senmaida (1,000 pieces of rice fields in Shiroyone district), which is designated by the government as a place of scenic beauty.

When it becomes dark in the evening, the solar-powered LED lights, installed by volunteers, begin to shine, creating an illuminated dream world.

The lights change colors from pink to green, gold and blue every 15 to 30 minutes. The four colors represent the four seasons of Wajima, which is located at the tip of the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture.

Electricity for the LED lights is stored in the daytime with solar batteries. The lights are lit up for four hours from sunset until March 10, 2019.
