The foliage season is nearing an end in my area. This year the autumn leaves are more beautiful than usual. The sidewalk in front of my house is covered with dead leaves shortly after I sweep up them.
The 16th "Kobe Luminarie" is being held in the central area of Kobe City from December 2nd to the 13th. Itwas started in December 1995 to mourn for the victims of the Great Hanshin Earthquake. The 270-meter-long galleria (a spectacular corridor of light) receive many visitors. The theme of this year's Luminarie is "Sentiment of Light, ILCUORE NELLA LUCE".
