I wish I could be there in Kitakyushu right now to take photos and make some videos. My favorite Kitakyushu-based photographer on IG @bunbunmaruko is uploading a bunch of great photos of all the Christmas lights in and around Kokura. Here are some of my favorites.

I love her photos. There are other photographers on IG that I subscribe to, but @bunbunmaruko is my all time favorite. She is participating in the Kokura Illumination Photo Contest again this year. The hashtag is #小倉イルミフォトコン. I hope one of her photos makes the cut. More photos to come as she posts them.
