A character from a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale is projected on the main gate to Zenkoji Temple in Nagano on the evening of Feb. 11, 2017, during the annual Nagano Tomyo Festival. During the Feb. 11-19 event, the main hall of the temple is lit up with LEDs. About 800 lanterns with paper cutouts featuring characters in fairytales by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen are also on display on the approach to the temple, in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Denmark.
