In the city of Iwakuni, on March 26, 2021, after 19:00, the lights of the Kintaikyo Bridge, the national scenic spot in Iwakuni, and the surrounding cherry blossoms were lit. Lights are installed on both banks of the Nishiki River. Lighting for the Kintaikyo Bridge began in 2008 and in 2019 some cherry blossoms were added. Until now, the lighting was only golden, but the city spent 27 million yen (€ 207,688) on renovating the facility in an effort to expand night tourism. Cherry blossoms will be lit until April 18 and Kintaikyo Bridge until June 1. Both create a fantastic atmosphere from sunset until 22:00.
