Photo Journal: The lighter side

Some of the about 1,000 lanterns from the city of Tainan, Taiwan, on display for the "Osaka Hikari-no Renaissance 2017" event are seen in Osaka's Kita Ward's Nakanoshima Park in this recent photo. Tainan is famed for its annual Yue Jin Lantern Festival, and lanterns from the southern Taiwanese city were put on display in Osaka for the first time as part of the two municipalities' ongoing tourism exchange relationship. The lanterns are turned on nightly from 5-10 p.m. until Dec. 25. (Mainichi)
