Mountain Lights

The summer of 2022 will see the inaugural opening of an extraordinary light art installation set within the vast mountainous ranges at the base of Mount Annupuri in Niseko Hanazono resort. For the first time ever the ski slopes will be magnificently lit with thousands of miniature firefly sculptures.

Mountain Lights is created and designed by the internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro. Nights in Niseko will be illuminated with his light-based artwork designed in complete harmony with natural surroundings, producing a dreamlike walkway spanning 1.3km through Niseko's wonderland. This is Bruce Munro’s first art installation in Japan and there is great anticipation that his creation will bring newfound attention and allure to Niseko’s stunning green season months.
